Subject: 	Shakespeare's reading

A good recent discussion of Shakespeare's reading is the article by 
Charles Forker, "How Did Shakespeare Come By His Books?" Shakespeare 
Yearbook 14 (2004), 109-120.

Best,

I hope that ya'll will address Joanne's question online. Shakespeare 
could, of course, have read Munday's work in manuscript. See the note on 
STC 20367. Munday claims in his dedication to the 18th Earl of Oxford 
that he had translated Primaleon while he was in the service of the 17th 
Earl. Munday claims that his translation has slept in oblivion until 
1619. Shakespeare may have worked with Munday on the play Thomas More. 
So it is possible the Primaleon slept part of that time on Shakespeare's 
writing table.
