Grove Press #ad - A book for anyone who loves Shakespeare .  .  . The plays glow with new life, exciting and real, infused with the soul of a man too long denied his inheritance. Sir derek Jacobi. The official history—of an uneducated merchant writing in near obscurity, and of a virginal queen married to her country—dominated for centuries.

He has made me view the whole Elizabethan world afresh. Who was william shakespeare?   critically acclaimed historian charles beauclerk has spent more than two decades researching the authorship question, someone with the monarch’s indulgence, and if the plays were discovered today, we would see them for what they are—shocking political works written by a court insider, he argues, shielded from repression in an unstable time of armada and reformation.

Shakespeare's Lost Kingdom: The True History of Shakespeare and Elizabeth #ad - Shakespeare’s lost kingdom delves deep into the conflicts and personalities of Elizabethan England, as well as the plays themselves, to tell the true story of the “Soul of the Age. Beauclerk’s learned, deep scholarship, compelling research, engaging style and convincing interpretation won me completely.

But the author’s identity was quickly swept under the rug after his death. One of the most scandalous and potentially revolutionary theories about the authorship of these immortal works.

Shakespeare By Another Name

Untreed Reads #ad - The debate over the true author of the Shakespeare canon has raged for centuries. Legendary figures such as mark twain, walt whitman and sigmund Freud have all expressed grave doubts that an uneducated man who apparently owned no books and never left England wrote plays and poems that consistently reflect a learned and well-traveled insider's perspective on royal courts and the ancient feudal nobility.

Recent scholarship has turned to edward de vere, 17th Earl of Oxford—an Elizabethan court playwright known to have written in secret and who had ample means, motive and opportunity to in fact have assumed the "Shakespeare" disguise. Biographer mark anderson incorporates a wealth of new evidence, including de Vere’s personal copy of the Bible in which de Vere underlines scores of passages that are also prominent Shakespearean biblical references.

Shakespeare By Another Name #ad - Astonishingly little evidence supports the traditional belief that Will Shakespeare, the actor and businessman from Stratford-upon-Avon, was the author. Shakespeare" by another Name is the literary biography of Edward de Vere as "Shakespeare. This groundbreaking book tells the story of de vere's action-packed life—as Renaissance man, scoundrel, spendthrift, wit, patron, student, above all, courtier, and, military adventurer, prolific ghostwriter—finding in it the background material for all of The Bard's works.
