Hamilton wrote this book when he was well on in years.  Shortly after
its publication, a one-off performance was done at a small NY venue,
which was attended by Hamilton, who answered questions after the
performance.  Hamilton said, contrary to the book, that he did not rely
on handwriting analysis but, rather, stylistic similarities with the
Canonical plays.  In particular, he found TSMT remarkably similar to the
late romances.  But TSMT is as Senacan and bloody -- maybe more so --
than TitAnd.
