Giving Will another Shake

Posted January 27th, 2007 by debritz

Stanley Wells has written an interesting and entertaining piece for The Guardian's blog on the never-ending efforts of highly learned people to try to prove that somebody other than William Shakespeare wrote the works attributed to William Shakespeare. As I've noted elsewhere, there's a lot of snobbery involved in all this, with the underlying assumption being that somebody as ordinary as Shakespeare could not have been a great writer. It's a bit like saying four working-class lads from Liverpool could never have become the world's greatest pop group.
