How about Browning's "Caliban Upon Setesbos," Swinburne or Longfellow's
Sonnets to Shakespeare?  Just thought they hadn't been mentioned.

Someone already mentioned Elvis Costello's new album, "Letters to
Juliet" which was inspired by the phenomenon of people writing to
Verona asking Juliet questions.  If you go back to Costello's first
album (1977?), "My Aim is True," the song "Mystery Dance" starts with
the lines "Romeo was restless, he was ready to kill/Jumped out the
window cause he couldn't sit still..."  Not deathless stuff, perhaps,
but you can dance to it.
