Lene Petersen doesn't mention that Cohn's book was first published in
1865 (yes, 18) and there has been some outstanding work on the topic
since then! There is, for instance, Simon Williams' excellent account in
his *Shakespeare on the German Stage vol 1: 1586-1914* (Cambridge 1990),
Jerzy Limon's *Gentlemen of a Company* covering 1590-1660 (Cambridge,
1985) and a good translation of five of the adaptations by Ernest
Brennecke, *Shakespeare in Germany 1590-1700* (Chicago, 1964). All have
done splendid archival research in this difficult area.
