From the Back Cover:

The question of who wrote Shakespeare’s plays has been the subject of furious debate among scholars for over 150 years. Everything known about the facts of William Shakespeare’s life seems incompatible with the extraordinary genius of his writing.  How could a man who left school at the age of 13, and apparently never travelled abroad have authored the incomparable Sonnets or so intricately described Renaissance Venice? Shakespeare ‘candidates’ abound, among them Sir Francis Bacon, The Earl of Oxford, even Queen Elizabeth I herself, but none have stood up to serious scrutiny. Until now....

 

 

 

This remarkable, intriguing, and provocative book offers a new answer and a completely plausible new candidate, with all the qualities of a believable author. [...] it seems certain to provoke new discoveries which will finally resolve the most perplexing, the most abiding, and the most important of literary riddles. [This] publication may prove to be an event of genuine world-wide importance [which will] radically change our understanding of the source and course of the English literary and cultural renaissance.

Professor John Spiers, School of Humanities, University of Glamorgan , & Institute of English Studies, University of London .

About the Author:

William Rubinstein is Professor of Modern History at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth.  He has had a long-standing interest in the Shakespeare Authorship question and has recently been invited to become a Trustee of the Shakespearean Authorship Trust, a body set up in 1922 to provide a neutral and positive forum for interested groups and individuals to debate the true authorship of Shakespeare’s plays and poems. He’s published widely on many aspects of modern history and his books include Genocide (Longman, 2004), Twentieth-century Britain : A Political History (2003), Philosemitism: Admiration and Support for Jews in the English-speaking World 1840-1939 (1999).

Brenda James has pursued a life-long interest in Shakespeare. She worked as a lecturer in English and Civilisation with the British European Centre where she ran specialist classes in Shakespeare studies, while also working as a part-time lecturer in English on the Portsmouth University Bachelor of Education course and researching aural history for Hampshire County Council. For the past seven years she has devoted her time to researching aspects of Shakespeare’s poetry and plays, also returning to her teenage interest in cracking Elizabethan codes and ciphers and in historical calligraphy and its transcription.

Virtually everything known about the facts of his life seems to belie the extraordinary genius of his plays and poems. As a result, over the past century and a half, many intelligent and perceptive people have come to the conclusion that Shakespeare was a front man' or smoke screen' for the true author of the works. Based on five years of in-depth research, Brenda James and William D Rubinstein's book The Truth Will Out unveils the most compelling candidate as the author of the greatest works in English literature. The discovery came as Brenda James was working on trying to discover the identity of the mysterious Mr W H, mentioned in the Dedication to the Sonnets. What emerged from her work amazed her. 396 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # INF1000035034
