Shakespeare

One of Bertolt Brecht's "Literary Sonnets" dating from the late 1930s is 
as good a 14-line synopsis of "Hamlet" as you'll find.  There's an 
English translation in John Willett and Ralph Manheim's volume of 
Brecht's poems.  He may have written more (apart from his adaptations of 
"Measure for Measure" and "Coriolanus") which can be sought out in the 
original German.
