Since 1920 a growing number of readers believe that Edward De Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford (1550-1604), wrote the works attributed to William Shakespeare, from Stratford on Avon. How and why would anyone think such a thing? There is circumstantial evidence to support the argument. De Vere's own life mirrors several events in Shakespeare's plays; his family had important literary ties; his travel to Italy appears in the settings of fourteen plays; his study of the Shakespearean subjects of...
Students will become familiar with the authorship controversy between Edward De Vere and William Shakespeare, and hone their skills of analyzing the arguments for and against each one. Such areas of argument will include biography, history, literature, and theater.
In college I majored in English and took three semesters of Shakespeare, taught his works to high school students, and read him avidly to this day. In time I became interested in the authorship controversy, have read extensively about it, always keep an open mind, and respect the thoughts of my students. This class does not seek to persuade students one way or the other, only to show them the reasons why the authorship controversy came about, and encourage them to read and think.
Students are encouraged to read ahead of time the arguments surrounding the authorship of Edward De Vere and William Shakespeare from the websites I provide.
A handout will be provided that summarizes the authorship controversy arguments about Edward De Vere and William Shakesppeare.
Informal conversation is key, especially with student questions and input.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Websites are provided that offer many readings about the authorship controversy.
