EPISODE 109| What's in a Name? The Shakespeare Authorship Debate

Guest: Scott Jackson, Mary Irene Ryan Executive Artistic Director of Shakespeare at the University of Notre Dame, current vice president of the Shakespeare Theatre Association (STA) and incoming president, actor, director and Shakespeare scholar

William Shakespeare wrote at least 36 plays, 154 sonnets, two narrative poems and a few shorter poems - more than 884,000 words total, more than 1700 of which he invented. But just who was this guy? Was he really "the Man from Stratford", or merely a pen name for... well someone else?

We look at some of the more popular Anti-Stratfordian theories and also look at why some people seem hell bent on proving that someone else, anyone else, actually wrote all that stuff.

  1. 03:02 - Upstart Crow - No evidence of his education, the First Folio, not much biographical evidence, a common hand, Bardathon
  2. 12:28 - The Ireland Shakespeare Forgeries - Compiling the First Folio, Vortigern and Rowena gets most of a performance
  3. 19:13 - The Baconian Theory - Bardolotry, Hart's The Romance of Yachting, Robert W. Jameson's "Who Wrote Shakespeare?", James Wilmot makes a bonfire
  4. 24:19 - Delia Bacon goes for the Rutland Theory, then the Groupists Theory, then all in on Bacon, travels to England, gets into codes and ciphers, loses her mind, inspires the New Historicists and cultural poetics; William Henry Smith and Nathaniel Homes kick off the Baconist Theory
  5. 30:11 - Baconist Orville Ward Owen builds a machine to find "proof", the first Mock Trial (1892-93)
  6. 33:17 - The Derbyite Theory & the Marlovian Theory - Classism, partnership with Marlowe, death and pseudonyms
  7. 39:57 - The Rutlandite Theory & More - More classism, Baconists still persist, more expeditions from Owen, schoolteacher Elizabeth Wells Gallup gets into codes, Stylometrics, the Claremont Shakespeare Authorship Clinic
  8. 44:31 - The Oxfordian Theory - John Thomas Looney fingers Edward de Vere based on spurious logic, lots jump on this bandwagon, geography in Shakespeare, "the coast of Bohemia", the media focuses on "reasonable doubt" over evidence, how plays were written back then, evidence gets lost in time
  9. 50:18 - A Single Hand - Though there is some reasonable doubt, Shakespeare probably wrote Shakespeare; Applied Shakespeare, humanity owns him, Shakespeare as a force for good (PTSD therapy, in prisons, etc.)
