But what few people know (though many have suspected) is that it was not the first time they met.Drawn from recently discovered archives, The Shakespeare Notebooks is the holy grail for Bard scholars: conclusive proof that the Doctor not only appeared throughout Shakespeares life but also had a significant impact on his writing. In these pages youll find early drafts of scenes and notes for characters that never appeared in the plays- discarded lines of dialogue and sonnets- never-before-seen journal entries- and much more.From the original notes for Hamlet (with a very different appearance by the ghost) and revealing early versions of the faeries of A Midsummer Nights Dream to strange stage directions revised to remove references to a mysterious blue box, The Shakespeare Notebooks is an astonishing document that offers a unique insight into the mind of one of historys most respected and admired figures. And also, of course, William Shakespeare.
