in consequence of the missive, Novels and Walpole's pretensions of being Shakespeare, penned by Barbara
The novel is Shakespearean in its five chapters/five acts parallel, and it has soliolquies and what Tom Bertram might call rants :) The omens and portents seem like Greek drama too, but there's definitely MacBeth-like overtones. It's operatic, even, in some of the melodrama.
Walpole did write some drama. I don't know a lot of details, though.
