Summary
This title traces Shakespeare's life and work from the autumn of 1605, when the author came upon an old and anonymous play - 'The True Chronicle History of King Leir' - in one of the bookstalls near his Silver Street lodgings. From there, the author traces the story's transformation into 'King Lear' as we know it - and then to 'Macbeth', written in 1606
