Subject:        Shakespeare as Model

What are the book-length studies of Shakespeare's texts as models for
subsequent literature?  I.e., say from _All for Love_ through
_Rosencranz and Guildenstern Are Dead_, as well as non-dramatic
reinscriptions of Shakespeare?  =

I have a question.  What happened to *The New Variorum Shakespeare*
after 1955, when *Richard II* was published.  In *The Reader's Guide to
Shakespeare*, it says that "now" (1966) *Titus Andronicus* and *The
Comedy of Errors* were being prepared.  I've never seen any volume later
than Ric. II.
Was Will D'Avenant the son of Will Shakespeare?

Tell me about the spelling and pronunciation of "weyward sisters" or
"weyard sisters" or "weird sisters"
