Abstract:

When an old friend and colleague passes away, an LSU English professor travels to Swansea, Wales, to attend the funeral and is bequeathed a cache of handwritten manuscripts: the plays of William Shakespeare, along with a rare, leather-bound copy of the First Folio --the first collection of Shakespeare's plays.
