The Folio Society has issued a limited-edition collection of The Complete Plays of William Shakespeare, in order to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the First Folio.
And, sure, the post that Literary Hub shared celebrating the friends of Shakespeare who saved his plays from the Globe Theatre fire in 1613 is to plug the sale of said limited edition.
But hey, it's not much of a stretch, in terms of Shakespeare's significance to the Western literary canon to call these two men heroic for their efforts, which Gregory Doran does in the post.
