Le Shakespeare?

I just recently found 365 Days of Shakespeare, and I'm kicking myself for not having done so sooner.  In this linked post she's found the French translations of some Shakespeare works, and asks how many you can name.  I'm ... not good at that game.  Sure, "Jules Cesar" is pretty obviously Midsummer ;) but I wouldn't have a clue at Songe d'une Nuit d'ete without some googling.  Much Ado, maybe?

Songe d’une Nuit d’Ete would likely be "Dream of a Night of Summer" - so Midsummer likely. My favoirte is Comme il Vous Plaira - As You Like It!

Must be similar in Swedish (a guess, based on the English title for the Bergman movie, "Smiles of a Summer Night").
