Product description


'Until now no book has provided the comprehensive evidence necessary to satisfy those 'Reasonable Doubters'.' James Shapiro, Columbia University, and author of Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare?

'The Shakespeare debate has never been hotter.' London Evening Standard

'This book helpfully pulls together irrefutable evidence that Shakespeare really was Shakespeare.' New Statesman

'Well conceived and energetic.' The Times Literary Supplement

'… salutary …' Standpoint

'Shakespeare Beyond Doubt shows, once more, that the fickle authorship controversy still exists not because there is no evidence that Shakespeare was Shakespeare but because anti-Shakespeareans refuse to acknowledge it and prefer the creative route of constructing an imaginary and speculative truth. History does not work like that. It is not a Hollywood movie.' The Huffington Post

'Thorough, rigorous, scholarly, and a lot of fun.' History Today

'The range of evidence, from dialect, through manuscript analysis, to stagecraft, makes it a wonderfully rounded introduction to the period, as well as to the playwright.' Judith Flanders, The Times Literary Supplement

'This excellent collection, edited by Paul Edmondson and Stanley Wells, assumes that it is possible to engage with the doubters in an honest, honourable, and constructive dialogue.' Quarto

'… a most useful volume …' The New Criterion

Book Description

Did Shakespeare write Shakespeare? The authorship question has been much treated in works of fiction, film and television, provoking interest all over the world. The book explores the issues surrounding the debate in the light of biographical, textual and bibliographical evidence to bring fresh perspectives on an intriguing cultural phenomenon.
