Henry Wood traces various contemporary responses to Shakespeare's plays in the form of parody and burlesque. The sources range from accounts of puppet-plays to the plays of Ben Johnson, and some of these sources provide additional information about the mysterious person of William Shakespeare that, if true, add to our understanding of the man. The interesting essay will be of interest to historians of Tudor and Jacobean drama and anyone with a love for the works of Shakespeare.
