Hardly a crackpot. The book contains nothing but verifiable facts hide-bound PHDs in English and Theater departments don't want to look at. I rather doubt the Stratford guy could write anything more then his own name. Which he did rather poorly.
Excellent resource for teachers of Shakespeare & Global Studies
I am a library/media coordinator and I highly recommend this podcast for educators. Anderson’s thorough research and quirky light hearted voice makes this an excellent addition to the curriculum. Use this podcast as a starting point for a research paper on British or Western European history or as a discussion piece to get unmotivated students interested in the legendary bard and his mysterious life!
Interesting but I'm not convinced
This Oxfordian view is interesting, but unconvincing for two reasons: 1) de vere died several years before the final Shakespeare plays were written, 2) the assumption that genius requires extensive education in order to flower is just simply false.
