For generations, storytellers, bards, and troubadours — ancient and modern — have been putting new spins on old tales. One of the oldest collections of stories, the Bible itself, even mentions this in Ecclesiastes 1:9:

That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.

It could even be argued by some that a few of these original stories, like Romeo and Juliet, were based on earlier stories. You’ll find the infographic below, and a complete list of the retellings can be found here.
