1.0 out of 5 stars An Essay by Professor Nelson, 16 July 2012
While Blair Worden, Alison Shell and Helen Cooper all contribute research or opinion helpful for those who think 'Shakespeare' was written by the Earl of Oxford, we will concentrate on the Essay by Alan Nelson :"Calling all biographers : A plea for Documentary Discipline".

We are told that the support of prominent actors, Freud and the many others ( such as the signatories to The Declaration of Doubt) "casts no significant light whatever on the Authorship controversy".

New Directions in Biography all point to the same dead-end.
