Subject:        Q: Shakespeare in French

Dear SHAKESPEAReans,

I am writing a paper about parallels in _King Lear_ and Molie`re's _Tartuffe_.
Although I do not assume that Molie`re borrowed from _King Lear_, it would be
helpful to know if and to what extent Shakespeare's plays were read in France.
Does anyone know about early translations of Lear, or other plays, into French
-- e.g. when they were done and who did them?

Merci,
Bianca Walther
