5.0 out of 5 stars Is shakespeare Dead?, 26 Jan 2012
S. S. Rowsell "bloodhound" (sydney australia) - See all my reviews
Incredibly insightful document by Mark Twain from 1909 - covering the full spectrum of the Shakespeare Authorship Question relating to the Baconian theory as an alternative... However the List of Authors so far includes these Luminaries: 10. Sir Fulke Greville 9. Emilia Lanier (Dark Lady) 8. The Group Thinktank theory 7. Roger Manners, 5th Earl of Rutland 6. William Stanley, 6th Earl of Derby 5. Mary Sidney Herbert, Countess of Pembroke 4. Sir Henry Neville 3. Christopher Marlowe 2. Sir Francis Bacon 1. Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford (new Anonymous film) and of course 'Will i am Shake speare' a novel name indeed!
The Baconian Theory since Ignatius Donnelley's massive 2 book thesis The Great Cryptogram (1887), is the encompassing theory of who and how and why the whole concept may have happened. Mark Twain must have read this theory well - as the real 'facts' of the 'Shakespeare as author' story are so mind blowing they stretch the imagination - to the point of becoming so loose as to be ridiculous beyond measure and open a floodgate of questions. Once a serious contemplation is done, the Shakespeare Agenda appears to be an insightful political thinktank program to deliberately widen the scope and spread of the British language and British patriotism thru plays questioning corruption in an early England - based at the time in a muddied water of European languages and political dissent, in an aim to gain a hold of common people sensibilities and solidify a bickering quartered nation under one Elizabeth Tudor - which it succeeded in doing very well...

With Sir William Cecil, Sir Walter Raleigh, John Dee and others at her side - who knows what else she was up to!!

Richard Henzel reads this play so well you feel like you are at Mark Twain's side listening to him turning the pages in contemplation ... remarkable experience. High marks.
