Eric Singdahlsen, let me know that CNN is running an article on the newest suspect in the Who was Shakespeare? Debate.
The newest suspect is Sir Henry Neville, an English courtier and distant relative of the Stratford Shakespeare. Shakespeare himself was simply a front man, claim Brenda James and William Rubinstein in "The Truth Will Out: Unmasking the Real Shakespeare." The book was recently published in Great Britain.
Once again the debate will rage over whether a man with little education and from a lower class background would have been capable of writing the works of Shakespeare.
Sir Henry joins the ever growing list of suspects who we have mentioned before; Edward deVere, Sir Francis Bacon and Christopher Marlowe.
I was wondering if we have anyone who would like to weigh in on this great debate. I will admit that I am in my heart a man who believes that one man wrote the works of William Shakespeare and that one man is William Shakespeare. I think it ma ybe something strangely American in my make-up that offends me when yet another member of the British Ruling Class is trotted out, rather than facing the very real possibilty that Shakespeare was a genuis who just happened to have been born to the lower classes.
Please chime in with your thought.
