In our collection Adaptations of Shakespeare, Daniel Fischlin and I focused on the groundbreaking work of Ruby Cohn in Modern Shakespeare Offshoots () in order to demonstrate how even as elaborate a system of categorization as Cohn's is "ultimately untenable," inevitably producing anomalies in the attempt "to classify the possibilities of rewriting too narrowly" (Fischlin and Fortier , 3).
