10 Reasons Why William Shakespeare is a Fraud

Although the little animations may rankle you, the reasons presented below are spot on. Anonymous used such inconsistencies but wound up fingering the wrong author of the plays.

The whole story is a lot more bizarre than what's presented in the movie Anonymous. For one thing, William Shakespeare was involved in the murder of his rival. My essay The Masque of William Shakespeare explains how William Shakespeare rose to prominence in the theater right after this murder.

St. Louis Experts -- Shakespeare Not Anonymous

Bruce Longworth, head of the performance program at Webster University's Conservatory of Theatre Arts, who has directed the Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' Kevin Kline-winning production of "Hamlet" in 2010, had this to say:

"Here's what I find troubling: the idea that Shakespeare had to be a nobleman with a university education. Education has never equated with imagination. If something happened to the Earl of Oxford (on a ship, similar to an episode in "Hamlet") — well, news got around. Maybe Shakespeare heard about it and used it; he was a magpie. Besides, Oxford had his own theater. Why wouldn't he give the plays to it?"

Not only did Shakespeare not have an education, he didn't even own a single book. Shakespeare never even mentioned his books or his plays in his will, but he did mention his bed. My essay The Masque of William Shakespeare explains how William Shakespeare rose to prominence in the theater and how he was involved in murder.

ANONYMOUS is a Tudor turkey!

That's what they're saying in the UK at Mail Online, giving it only one star. Why? The film presents a ludicrous premise that is unsupported by history. The reviewer says Anonymous is preposterous.

But so is William Shakespoeare, the writer. The real William Shakespeare had little or no education and never even owned a book. That's where the movie got it right--Shakespeare was most likely an illiterate baffoon. Common sense would say that the author of the greatest literature in English history needed a little education and surely should own a book or two. Doubts about Shakespeare have been expressed by Mark Twain and Sigmund Freud, to name only a few.

My essay The Masque of William Shakespeare shows that the real William Shakespeare was deeply entangled in a conspiracy that ended in murder. The evidence uncovers the actual writer of the plays...and it wasn't Shakespeare.
