Clues are given ac­cord­ing to al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der of their an­swers, which should be en­tered jig­saw-fash­ion in the grid. Four clues are with­out def­i­ni­tion parts; their an­swers are names of places in a work by a per­son born 350 years ago this Novem­ber. Two un­clued en­tries form the work’s ti­tle, and two un­clued en­tries form the au­thor’s name.
