Subject: Poetry inspired by Shakespeare
Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
It occurred to me today to wonder whether anyone has ever compiled
an anthology or bibliography of poems, plays, short stories, etc.
inspired by Shakespeare and/or his works. I'm thinking of canonical
literary works, like Keats' "On Sitting Down to Read *King Lear* Again"
or Stoppard's "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead," but of course
such uncanonical doggerel as the poems by "Guillaume Chequespierre"
I posted some months back might also be interesting.
Just curious. Any ideas?
