WHO AUTHORED THE SHAKESPEARE PLAYS? - PART III

Part 3 - WHO AUTHORED THE SHAKESPEREAN PLAYS

(The Courts’ Decision)


Hear Ye, Hear Ye, the Royal Court Of Academia is now in session,

The Right Honorable Magistrate Orville Truthfinder presiding.


“Please be seated, this session is convened to render

The Court’s decision in the matter of who is the true author

of the Shakespearean plays.

It is common knowledge, in literary circles, that some

people question that William Shakespeare of Stratford On

The Avon, wrote the plays accredited to him. Sir John Langston

made credible arguments that Shakespeare had neither the

cultural background nor the education to have penned these

masterpieces of life and intrigue among the royalty of his time.

Shakespeare had an acquaintance with the Earl Of Oxford

who presumably did have the cultural and educational

background to have penned the Shakespearean plays.

Sir Langston pointed out that the Earl could not

have published the plays under his own name because

It would have been beneath the dignity of his title.

Therefore, he very likely paid William Shakespeare

to publish the Earl’s writings under the name Shakespeare.”


“Sir Bennett Johnston argued that there is no credible proof

That anyone other than William Shakespeare wrote the

plays attributed to him. Sir Johnston further argued

that two reputable peers Of Shakespeare, Ben Johnson

and Francis Bacon attested to the true authorship

of the plays as none other than William Shakespeare.


This court has carefully considered the arguments of

these noted literature giants from Oxford University.

The court agrees there are unexplained coincidental

mysteries which could be used to raise questions of whether

William Shakespeare authored the Shakespearean plays.

However, this court did not find any proof positive that

William Shakespeare did not author the plays.

Therefore, it is the ruling of this court that,

until proof positive is submitted to this court that

Shakespeare did not author the subject plays,

William Shakespeare of Stratford On The Avon,

is declared the true author of his plays..”

ALL RISE COURT IS DISMISSED.
