Alias Shakespeare

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Who wrote Shakespeare's plays? Joseph Sobran dismantles the established argument, and presents a compelling case for Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, whose life and literary accomplishments make him a more plausible author than an obscure country actor. Today, the long-standing and impassioned debate about the so-called authorship question is perceived by Shakespearean scholars as the preserve of eccentrics and cranks. But in this contrarian work of literary detection, author Sobran boldly reopens this debate and allows the members of Shakespeare's vast contemporary public to weigh all the evidence and decide for themselves.

The book is in fair condition, the binding is sound and all the pages are clean and unmarked. There are a couple of places on the front and back covers at the bottom of the book where the red covering has been very slightly scratched and thus removed. The top and bottom of the spine is also very slightly bent and there are one or two small marks on the pages at top and bottom of the book when the book is closed. The dustjacket is in good condition save for the top corners which are showing slight signs of wear.
