The historical records concerning William Shakespeare’s life reveal many
-While the records from the theatrical world in London show that he
worked as an actor and playwright, the contemporary documentation from
Stratford-upon-Avon reveals no theatrical or literary interests of any kind.
-No record exists of Shakespeare receiving an education, buying a single
book or writing poems or plays.
-Over the years this enigma has led to speculation that Shakespeare was
not the author of the plays attributed to him.
-Various candidates have been proposed as the “real” author, such as the
English statesman Francis Bacon and the earls of Oxford and Derby,
whom it has been speculated used Shakespeare as a frontman as they
wished for various reasons to remain anonymous.
The only problem with this theory is that it makes no sense. Why pick a
frontman who seems to have had no literary connections - at least none
that he advertised in Stratford-upon-Avon?
