W. Shakespeare, Gent, His Actual Nottebook

W. Shakespeare, Gent, His Actual NottebookIt is with great excitement but also a certain measure of scepticism that Shakespearian scholars learned of the 'amazing discovery' by Professor Clarke VSOP of St. Aggers College, Kent. I refer, of course, to the so called W. SHAKESPEARE GENT: HIS ACTUAL NOTTEBOOKE - 'a priceless literary and artistic treasure of which the world has hitherto merely dreamed'. The Professor, whose academic standing has in the past been, to say the least, somewhat rickety, claims to have unearthed the volume; not in a dusty secondhand bookshop or in an old trunk in his aunt Mabel's attic, but in the lining of an ancient leather jerkin, believed to have been used for theatrical purposes, but recently performing as a bed for the family mongrel. The NOTTEBOOK provides an intimate autobiographical account of the bard's teenage years. Penned in his own idiosyncratic hand, it contains numerous drawings and sketches and covers the young William's doings from his expulsion from Stratford-upon-Avon Grammar School until he removed himself to London - following his enforced marriage to 'the woman Hathaway'. Following the discovery in May 1992 (400 years to the day after the final entry in the book), Professor Clarke has 'authentickated' the work on our behalf. His colleagues in the Department of Anachronology at St. Aggers are greatly surprised by his revelations. You will be too.
