In How to Read Like a Proffessor, Foster points out that Shakespeare is probably the most common person to borrow from in the literary world. Shakespeare's stories can be found in many different forms. Overtly, some works relate to his work, such as the play "Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)", which offers a new look at characters from Othello and Romeo and Juliet, or Christopher Moore's novel Fool, which is a parody of King Leer, told from the perspective of the fool. Others often borrow quotes from Shakespeare's work, this is obvious from a great many titles Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, Huxley's Brave New World and Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. In many cases, even some of the words that we use were first coined by him.

As Foster says: "When in doubt, its from Shakespeare"
