There is evidence (in Draytons Matilda 1594, line 36-42 ) that 1594 the tragedy of "The Rape of Lucrece" by Thomas Heywood was acted on the London stage. A Quarto of the play does exist from 1608
Are we really to believe that the subject of the "Rape of Lucretia" appeared in the same year 1594 as a narrative poem by William Shakespeare , as a stage Play (tragedy) by Thomas Heywood, and as a Poem by Michael Drayton?
Isn't it more likely in 1594 ( the first year after Marlowe's Life catastrophy) that the author/inventor of the poetic metaphor of the crime of Tarquin versus Lucrece was always the same but published his biographic metaphor as different literary genres with different authors?.
Why there isn't a more consistent explanation for these strange observations by Shakespeare experts?
