The plots and stories behind Shakespeare’s plays came from a wide range of sources: Holinshed’s Chronicles, The Decameron, Plautus, Myth, Legend and more. Richard Selby and David Metcalfe present a selection of these, reflecting on the origins of the plays, introducing the craft of storytelling to the academic sources.
