Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"An often ingenious and surprising work, Shakespeare's Mystery play sets out to show that Julius Caesar was the first play performed at the new Globe Theatre on 12 June 1599. Steve Sohmer draws on areas of expertise which are rarely allied in Shakespeare scholarship and throws new light, not only on Julius Caesar, but on Hamlet, Twelfth Night and a variety of accepted beliefs. The considerable detective work invested in researching astrological, astronomical, calendrical, historical and even hydrological data, is lucidly marshalled."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
