Really helpful (for me!) book, which charts all of the references to theatre within Shakespeare's work and places them alongside extracts from his lesser known contemporaries to create a picture of Early Modern theatrical practice. Also a great one to reinforce the notion that the man who wrote the plays (that glover's son from Stratford upon Avon) was, above all things, a man of the theatre although that is not part of its remit at all.
