I Recommend This Book

Maybe

Anyone who has more than a cursory knowledge of Shakespeare has heard the rumors that the glove maker from Stratford-Upon-Avon may not have authored the plays that bear his name. In this book, Beauclerk takes the side of the Oxfordians who claim that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, was the true Bard. The author of this book offers up compelling evidence framed around the political, economical, and even social realities of the time. 

I recommend this book to Shakespearean scholars,--even if your views are antipodal to Beauclerk--anglophiles, and students of British literature. You may find yourself surprised by what you find within these pages.
