The Truth About Shakespeare

Who really wrote all his plays?

William Shakespeare is often cited as the “best writer in history.” His work can be considered the first to really dive into human behavior through fiction.

What we do know is:

He was popular in his day. His acting troupe started performing more of his plays when it was clear they were the most popular.

But did he write it?

Delia Bacon was the first person to question the authenticity of Shakespeare’s work in the 1850s.
