Anonymous Shake-Speare - The Man Behind


 

A new Roland Emmerich film is to be released in October 2011. The title of this 35 million dollar film to be: "Anonymous". The main theme of the film is that the seventeenth Earl of Oxford (1550-1604) wrote the Shakespearian works (The Oxford Theory). How could such a postulation come about and where does this doubt as to William Shakspear's authorship come from? (No offence is intended bycalling the actor from Stratford-upon-Avon "Shaksper"; he certainly wouldn't have taken any, that's how he wrote it on his marriage license.) After the academic world has been guessing and floundering for 150 years, the literary detective Kurt Kreiler surprises us with a book that addresses this subject after years of sound and thorough academic research. This is definitely the leading book on this subject. Chapters 1 and 2 explain why Will Shaksper from Stratford-upon-Avon was not an author. In chapter 3, ten works of the author William Shakespeare will be analysed with a view to determine what criteria the author must have had in order to write the works in question. Which foreign lands had the author visited? What historical references have been made? When were the pieces written? Chapter 4 examines the social perspectives of the "Author of the plays". Chapter 5 examines what Shakespeare's literary contemporaries knew about him, with whom did they associate him, what qualities did they attribute to him? An analysis of the Harvey-Nashe-Quarrel show us that they both agree that the author "Master William" was the creator of the figure Falstaff and that this author was Eduard de Vere, Earl of Oxford. Chapter 6 deals with the first part of the biography of Eduard de Vere. Chapters 7 and 8 show that the the profile of the Author that was developed in chapters 3-5 correlates logically and universally with the biography of the Earl of Oxford. Chapter 9 is a continuation of the biography of the writer and spear shaker "William Shake-speare" up to his death in 1604. Chapter 10 shows why, how and for whom the dramatist Ben Jonson went about the task ofprocuring the nom de plume Shake-speare. By using the coincidental similarity between the names Shake-speare and Shaksper, Jonson posthumously set up a marionette to claim authorship of the Shakespearian works.WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE had nothing to do with the actor and money lender William Shaksper from Stratford-upon-Avon. The man behind the nom de plum "William Shakespeare" was, in fact, a very well educated aristoctrat who often frequented the court of Elizabeth and whose real name was Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford. The dramas of the spear shaker, Shakespeare were not written for the Globe theatre but for the Queen's court. The dramatist Ben Jonson published the Shakespearian works and saw to it that a monument, with a bust of the "marionette dramatist" William Shaksper was erected in the church of Stratford-upon-Avon. These astonishing theories are not the theme of a fictional work. They are based on a diligently researched academic biography of the the author, which could indeed deliver the story for a novel.1.
