It was Shakespeare. Are you Kydding?

Shakespeare fans and Renaissance Drama geeks (yes, such things do exist) may be interested to learn that it has been confirmed beyond reasonable doubt that Shakespeare is even more prolific than we’d suspected having contributed 325 lines to Thomas Kyd’s Spanish Tragedy.
