Subject:        Shakespeare Spinoffs
 
Not exactly a spinoff of a particular play but Cothburn O'Neal's
"The Dark Lady" (New York: Crown, 1954) is a novel about Rosaline
(the dark lady) who is the creative genius behind Shakespeare.  She
is an actor in his company, writes the plays, has a love affair with
Southampton (sonnets are a record of this relationship).  As fanciful as
Burgess's "Nothing Like the Sun."    Herb Donow @SIUC
