Contested Will : who wrote Shakespeare?
Call Number: SFCC Call Number: 822.33 SHAPIRO
..."Baconian authorship roped in prestigious advocates including Mark Twain, Henry James, and Helen Keller before the cause of Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, displaced it in the mid-twentieth century. Shapiro devotes a lengthy chapter to both advocacy movements, the later of which has found new life on the Web, before succinctly explaining why Shakespeare's case has always trumped all challengers and only becomes stronger as new evidence is discovered, as it has been, rather richly, since the 1970s. A book no Shakespearean should miss." Olson, Ray Booklist
