“…The Shakespeare Notebooks is an astonishing document that offers a unique insight into the mind of one of history’s most respected and admired figures. And also, of course, William Shakespeare.”
Tomorrow marks 400 years since William Shakespeare shuffled off this mortal coil. In that time his reputation has grown from a somewhat well-known playwright to the most famous writer in the English language. I’m sure fans of Shakespeare have dreamed of traveling to early seventeenth century Stratford-upon-Avon and meeting the great playwright at least once; imagine how often a centuries-old Time Lord with access to his own TARDIS could make the trip.
Newly discovered “The Shakespeare Notebooks” is a comprehensive collection of journal entries, rough drafts, additional characters, annotated scripts, and many other snippets from the Bard’s personal writing which will give you an idea of just how much of an influence that a mysterious “Doctor” had on his life.
