Short discussion about whether Fletcher's Cardenio is in fact one of Will's lost plays: "But what of the play's origins? The handwriting expert compared an original manuscript to Shakespeare's will, one of the few documents known to have been in the Bard's own hand. The verdict was a match. The conclusion suggests Cardenio was either Shakespeare's own creation or he may have edited and critiqued Fletcher's script as a teaching tool. "

The William Shakespeare Weblog is looking for contributions. If you want to comment or follow-up on something which has been mentioned or you have something which you think might of interest to readers please get in touch. We would particularly like to hear from anyone connected with a production of one of Will's plays for a prospective diary feature. Above all else Shakespeare's words are as relevant now as then and its important for this weblog to reflect that.
