Of course Shakespeare was Shakespeare, the question is ; was Shakspere of Stratford, Shakespeare. The Stratfordians, since 1915, have consistently referred to the Stratford man as Shakespeare even though his name is not spelt that way in contemporary documents. Professor Wells makes his case fluently as one would expect but, not surprisingly, glosses over or ignores details which do not fit with his narrative. An enjoyable read which helps with the big question.
