Here's a link to a rather fun piece called "5 Shakespearean Heroes That Science Fiction Epics Could Learn From," by Charlie Jane Anders. (Thanks to Tansy Rayner Roberts for the link!)
I love how everything is Shakespeare and Shakespeare is everything. I find it hilarious and delightful when people draw these parallels. I'm waiting to see added to the groaning bookshelf of Shakespeariana titles like Macbeth or McDonalds: Shakespeare and the Death of Fine Cuisine or Ophelia's Secrets of Aquatic Gardening, or maybe Falstaff Didn't Die: The Shocking Story of How He Changed His Name and Went On Biggest Loser.
