Subject:        Shakespeare Spin-offs

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

I have seen the wonderful Shakespeare spin-off bibliography through this
server, and I am interested in discovering more about Shakespeare
spin-offs (borrowings and explorations of Shakespearean 'themes' and
characters in cultural works of many kinds-literary, musical, fashions,
and life-styles) in both English and non-English-speaking cultures, past
and present. I am aware of the more obvious and canonical borrowings and
adaptations of Shakespeare, but I am also interested in lesser-known,
more obscure cultural manifestations of this phenomenon. Please let me
know if you can point me to a few 'spin-offs' that you find particularly
entrancing or provocative-a poem you have read in any language, a piece
of music you have heard, a fashion of clothes or a play you have seen,
read, admired, or detested, and the like...
