A Groatsworth of Wit was a pamphlet written in 1592 by playwright Robert Greene on his deathbed which was about William Shakespeare. According to Bloodfinger, this writing was a "heartfelt repentance" for his life lived, and according to a staff member at the Books Unltd. bookshop, it helped date Shakespeare's early plays, because of Green quoting from "One of the Henrys". He said it was lucky for Greene that he wrote about the Bard, "or we'd never have heard of him". (COMIC: A Groatsworth of Wit)
