9 Lives of William Shakespeare + 1 film

Times Higher Education – Nine Lives of William Shakespeare.

An academic provides nine ways of looking at the question, ‘Who was Shakespeare?’ This controversy never seems to go away – see the recent book by James Shapiro, Contested Will (in the library) for a summary of all the foolishness and deception involved. There’s a film appearing soon that will support one of the wildest of these theories: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBmnkk0QW3Q
