RE: SHAKSPEARE SPINOFFS
 
Somebody has already mentioned Tom Stoppard's R & S ARE DEAD.
He also wrote two other plays that refer back to Shakespeare.
They are DOGG'S HAMLET and CAHOOT'S MACBETH.

How many of us has read <<Shakespeare's Dog>>?  My students find it a
total lark, particularly because the author reads the text so well.

I'd like to add somewhat to the scope of my previous question: I am
interested in compiling a list of the more "important" (well-known,
canonical, interesting, humorous, or simply literary masterpieces)
works which refer back to Shakespeare in a significant way.  I am
thinking of T.S. Eliot's "Marina" or W.H. Auden's "The Sea and the Mirror,"
for instance.  It's amazing how many of these I have been unaware of
until now!
 
My thanks for the responses thus far; I look forward to more of the
same.
