Our Chronology

Though there is no certainty when it comes to the exact dates and order in which Shakespeare wrote his plays, through years of dedicated scholarship we have a decent idea. As this podcast is ostensibly going through Shakespeare’s plays in order, I needed to figure out what order I’d be using. The following chronology is based on The Riverside Shakespeare, and this is the order in which we’ll be treating Shakespeare’s plays.
