A quick off-the cuff answer: an inquiry about Hegel and Shakespeare is 
likely to turn very quickly into an inquiry about Schlegel and Shakespeare.

Subject:    Hegel and Shakespeare (response)

Hegel apparently saw Shakespeare performed in English in Paris. The 
biography on Hegel in which I read this is by Terry Pinkard  --  really 
a great intellectual biography. The index should direct you the page 
number, around p. 551 or so.

More generally, on Hegel and Shakespeare, see also:

A forthcoming book (from SUNY press) by Jennifer Bates on Hegel and 
Shakespeare.

My own forthcoming volume, Philosophers on Shakespeare, ed. Paul A. 
Kottman (Stanford UP); and Paul A. Kottman, Tragic Conditions in 
Shakespeare (J Hopkins UP, forthcoming)

Anne and Henry Paolucci have written on Hegel and Shakespeare, in their 
collection 'Hegelian Literary Perspectives.'

A. C. Bradley's comments on Hegel and Shakespeare, scattered through his 
writings.
