There is also a chapter comparing and contrasting the narrative and dramatic modes, and one called Kyd and the Inset in which Berry credits the playwright Thomas Kyd with originating inset device. An entire chapter is devoted to an examination of the insets in Hamlet, and there is a chapter on the late romances.
