In one of the liveliest debates of the past 400 years, scholars have argued about the true identity of the great playwright William Shakespeare. Most believe that the Bard was an actor and part owner of a theatre company in the English town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Yet for centuries, a vocal minority--including prominent figures such as Mark Twain and Sigmund Freud-have asserted that these astonishingly erudite and literate plays are more likely the work of a nobleman or even, as some have proposed, Queen Elizabeth herself. In this complex and important case, Fields serves as the perfect guide through the maze of false assumptions and reasonable doubt, taking us closer than ever before to the true identity of the great Bard himself.

This book is about trying to find out if Shakespeare's works were written by Shakespeare. If you want to know the answer, you may also watch the DVD called "Anonymous".
