9781411678804: The Shakespeare Puzzle

Daily Telegraph (UK) puzzle expert Barry R. Clarke guides the reader through the case for the philosopher Sir Francis Bacon as the author of the Shakespeare work. We shall see that, apart from his name being on the work, there is surprisingly little evidence supporting the claim for Shakspere of Stratford, the London actor. Bacon, then regarded as the finest mind for 500 years, appears to have used Shakspere's name to advertise his moral philosophy. Previous books on this issue have failed to convince, often losing the reader in a wilderness of uncoordinated detail. However, this is tightly argued with full references. Other books by Barry R. Clarke: Brain Busters (Dover: 2003), Challenging Logic Puzzles from Mensa (Sterling: 2003), and Puzzles 4 Pleasure (Cambridge University Press: 1994).
