Description
For centuries scholars have debated the true identity of the author of the poems and plays attributed to William Shakespeare, the actor and co-owner of a successful theater company who hailed from Stratford-upon-Avon. Many credible voices—Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, and Walt Whitman, to name a few—have proposed alternative candidates, from rival playwrights Ben Jonson and Christopher Marlowe to Queen Elizabeth herself, in what has become a centuries-old parlor game. In this provocative book, historian and attorney Bertram Fields argues that no one man could have held the breadth and range of knowledge evidenced in Shakespeare, and makes a persuasive case that two very different men collaborated to produce the works attributed to the Bard.
