If we're going with pop music as well, how about Harry Nilsson's
old album "A Little Touch of Harry in the Night"? The songs aren't
Shakespearean, but I like the album title.

Hello.  The subject entry for what you want is "Shakespeare in fiction,

will make a few suggestions.

*Boston Prize Poems...*  (1824)  Poems submitted in 1823 for a prize
        offered by the manager of the Boston theatre for an ode in
        honor of Shakespeare.

Oliver Wendell Holmes  *Poem...for the Dedication of the Fountain
        at Stratford-on-Avon...*  (1887)

        Witches of Shakespeare...*  (1776)

The World Shakespeare Bibliography (published each year as a supplement to
Shakespeare Quarterly) has a section on "Shakespeare in Literature" that
lists poems, fictional works, plays, etc. that are in some way related
to Shakespeare.

Comment:        RE: SHK 4.0273  Rs: Poems
 
Two Yeats poems, "Lapis Lazuli" and "An Acre of Grass," make interesting
use of *Hamlet*, *Lear*, and *Timon.*  Louis Macneice's "The Sunlight on the
Garden" makes interesting use of *Antony and Cleopatra*.
