Very interesting OP. I haven't read it before because I was concentrating on Margaret Forster's book.

The report sounds reasonable and, as most people know, there isn't a new idea about plots for stories under the sun!! However much assistance Shakespeare had, or other works he read, or whether people want to argue that somebody else wrote them (I certainly don't agree with Eddie's post!!), the fact remains that the plays as they stand have received applause and recognition for overfour centuries and long may they continue to do so. The more information that is found to help understand all the background to them, the better. If people are offended - and I bet some are - then it is up to them to write greater, more influential and more lasting plays!!
