How many scripts did William Shakespeare write?

In 1623, about seven years after Shakespeare's death, two of his colleagues published a collection of Shakespeare's plays containing 36 scripts, about half of which had been previously published. The play Pericles, which had been published in 1609, was soon added. Scholars now also consider Shakespeare to have been one of the authors of The Two Noble Kinsmen, which was published as written by Shakespeare and Fletcher. (Fletcher almost certainly co- wrote other plays with Shakespeare.) Then there are two titles of plays of which no copies have come down to us: Cardenio and Love's Labour's Won. So that makes forty plays altogether. There may have been more we don't know about.

What is the contribution of William Shakespeare in the development of drama?

The period 1550 to 1640 saw the development of English drama from its roots in medieval morality plays and Latin relics to a well-developed literary form and a sophisticated form of entertainment. Most of the major steps in this development had already taken place by the time Shakespeare had come on the scene, but a comparison of plays written before Shakespeare and those after shows that Shakespeare raised the bar to new heights. In particular, his careful plotting and complex characters set an example for the playwrights that followed.
