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.
