In his short (but by Elizabethan standards, fairly long) life, William Shakespeare authored — by himself or in collaborations — 38 plays, 154 sonnets and a handful of poems and other verses. But in death, the Bard has lived on, with hundreds or possibly thousands of works inspired by his genius being produced since, from Broadway classics like “West Side Story” to thoroughly modern teen flicks like “10 Things I Hate About You” and “She’s the Man.”
