All the World's a Stage... called the Internet
Imagine what Elizabethan England would think of the World Wide Web. Plagiarism abounding but also a global forum for spreading ideas and influence. Modern authorship scholars are lucky indeed to have this tool at their disposal.
Almost quarterly, surely yearly, new books and articles are published about the Authorship Question. Many use computers to study portraits and signatures and word usage in Shakespeare's plays to discover new clues that either confirm or deny the accepted ideas about the identity of the Man from Stratford.
We at the Roundtable are readers! Be they plays, books, blogs or internet articles. Here there be links to videos, Frontline episodes and more. Who said the Authorship Mystery can't be fun? One thing we can agree on; we love the plays!
