Not a rant at all – very reasonable
on 30 April 2016
Seems a reasoned view. Idries Shah, who wrote The Sufis, first indicated to me that there was a problem with who wrote Shakespeare's plays and sonnets. Whoever wrote Shakespeare’s plays was a widely travelled polymath, master of several languages, of classics, law, medical knowledge, hermeticism and the behaviour of people in the courts of Europe. There is no substantive evidence that the ‘sage’ who injected such wisdom into England was the tax-evading provincial businessman from Stratford. This book gives the evidence for the lack of evidence.
