About the Book

This book critically explores the supernatural and prophetic elements residing within Shakespeare’s ten plays of English history: King John, Richard II, Henry IV (Parts 1 and 2), Henry V, Henry VI (Parts I–3), Richard III, and Henry VIII. Treating each as a form of nonfiction, it analyzes these plays and their prophecies through the lens of free will or fate, demonstrating how Shakespeare’s characters are entangled with cosmic forces and the occult. Along the way, the author makes several intriguing discoveries regarding Shakespeare’s plays, beliefs, and the world he lived in.
