      Wow. This book is a tour de force of research and brilliantly written discourse. How anyone could read this and still truly doubt that William Shakespeare of Stratford Upon Avon was the author of the plays, poems and sonnets for which he is (almost) universally acclaimed is beyond me.It's a shame that this book is needed but it does its job well. Key chapters include one on all of the allusions to Shakespeare up to 1642, a fabulous chapter on Shakespeare as a collaborator, another on the use of [...]

      I should probably start by saying that I do firmly believe that William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon wrote the plays and poems attributed to him, some of the plays in collaboration with his fellow playwrights.

I'm quite capable of analyzing data and discarding faulty propositions. I have done a lot of r [...]

      A brilliant refutation of anti-Stratfordian nonsense by a range of academics. Some of the essays are a little dry but the strength of the overall argument is undeniable. Shakespeare, a glove-maker's son from Stratford, is responsible for the plays attributed to him, most of which he wrote in collaboration with his acting and play-writing mates.

      A good series of well-written, scholarly and accessible articles that explore different aspects of the authorship debate.

    • Elysa says:

      This had a good variety of articles. Even though they were all about the same major subject, each stood on its own with a specific study. The book was laid out well, and it was an enjoyable read.
