A focus on the better-known dramatists of Shakespeare's time,
many surprisingly forgotten today, article by @andykesson: Authorship studies: where have we got to, and where are we going? https://beforeshakespeare.com/2018/02/19/authorship-studies-where-have-we-got-to-and-where-are-we-going/ via @B4Shakes
Additionally, you can also go deeper into the script with our Spoilers episodes, looking at the dramaturgy of the play in detail, with a plain text (mostly) uncut version and commentary. With bonus cat based material which didn't make the final cut. https://audioboom.com/playlists/4628938-gammer-gurton-s-needle
There were dozens of green parakeets in the trees yesterday. A sign that bad weather is approaching?

This painting embodies so much of the Renaissance to me. Incredible realism, a mountain of symbolism and contemporary references, accurate depiction of a variety of items of the period, reflection of Renaissance values like contemplating mortality. https://twitter.com/41Strange/status/1199569407241908224
Well, that's more than a bit confusing, but OK. (8 day strike from Nov 24) https://twitter.com/mattmccall25/status/1198998842059964417
"Mary Wroth, Jane Cavendish, and Elizabeth Brackley: Women's Household Drama: Loves Victorie, A Pastorall, and The concealed Fansyes", Edited by Marta Straznicky and Sara Mueller - contains old-spelling texts and annotations of 3 EM plays: https://www.itergateway.org/womens-household-drama
I just read that there are teaching editions available of Mary Wroth's play "Love's Victory." Had thought that only one short fragment of that was public. (Intro of Book: "Mary Wroth and Shakespeare")
A theory about "The Elder Brother" is that John Fletcher died suddenly in 1625, leaving behind a prose draft/version of the play. Then it is thought that Philip Massinger finished and possibly rewrote some of it.
"The Elder Brother" has been printed entirely in prose in the Second Folio, and I have therefore printed in the Appendix the play in verse, as...in the First Quarto.... I have not concerned myself with passages in the Second Folio...[later]...printed in verse", A.R.Waller, 1906
Yet I don't understand why Mr. Rat is so disliked. He's hardly worse than the others. The Baily is the only one who succeeds in counseling everyone, however, it seems. #GammerGurton
Glad to have been reminded of when Hodge has a change of clothes. I hadn't fully grasped the plotting. #GammerGurton

I don't know about this. It seems that one person's (or culture's) cheerful might be another person's sarcastic, etc. https://twitter.com/Grammarly/status/1191463305375698944
So the person who wrote this article calls herself a specialist in Early Medieval England rather than using the term 'Anglo-Saxon.'

At a time when our world is going increasingly and diversely crazy, I have been looking back on another thing that started in 2016: @B4Shakes. This thread points to a number of free, public-facing resources on our website. 1
