Great Regulars: Explaining his title, [A.D.] Nuttall properly distinguishes

between, on the one hand, what Shakespeare thought--which, given the medium of drama, we cannot know--and, on the other, what he thought about and how he thought about it, which we can know. He advances more or less chronologically through the canon, devoting some 10 pages to almost every play, identifying and exploring the dramatist's treatment of such central human concerns as love, death, politics, religious doubt, nature, art, and language.
