The Shakespeare Conspiracy

5 posts in this topic

I have recently become very interested in this....

There is a excellent documentary, that features several historians, and actors such as Sir Derek Jacobi, and Venessa Redgrave, called "Last Will. & Testament" and it also has scenes in it from the movie, "Anonymous" which, is a good film as well....

Here is a link to the trailer of this documentary:

There are also some very good articles, and sources about the Skakespeare Authorship Debate:

Link to other possible Shakespeare Candidates:

Another interesting site:

Now, being a Tudor-aphile for most of my life, I don't buy the Tudor Rose theory of the Oxfordian Theory, that's a little too far fo me, but nontheless, it IS interesting, I must say....

Anyone else's thoughts?

I caught "Last Will. & Testament" on PBS yesterday. I agree, there are several interesting theories presented in that doc. The smoking gun for me is the fact that Shakespeare escaped the censorship that brought down many of their contemporaries. Some playwrights paid for their indiscretions with their lives, like Chris Marlowe.

I agree. Ben Jonson, as well, was always in trouble with the Elizabethan authorities.....

Esp. after that debacle, with the Shakespeare play "Richard II" and the Essex Rebellion....Yet, they not once questioned Shakespeare...They just asked the actors a few questions who had been in the play, and that was it.....Elizabeth even said once, "No ye not that I AM Richard II.".....Come on, considering some of the things Shakespeare wrote and the people he mocked in there, why wasn't Shakespeare in more trouble witht the authorities? I can't see Cecil and Elizabeth just standing for that....

Being an old English major, I'm familiar with this controversy.

Being a Libra, I haven't taken sides--I'm neutral.

:audible gasp:

You mean there's actually a "conspiracy theory" out there you don't believe in?

Just messing with you! :P
