Keir Cutler (Ph.D. in Theater) has published an e-book titled The Shakespeare Authorship Question: A Crackpot’s View, on Kindle. The book is based on Cutler’s articles in The Montreal Gazette and elsewhere. Cutler discusses the Shakespeare Authorship Question but also takes on the Shakespeare academic establishment for failing to present students with a fair account of the evidence for and against the orthodox Stratford authorship theory. Here’s a link to Cutler’s e-book on Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/The-Shakespeare-Authorship-Question-ebook/dp/B00BV7DVVG
Cutler points out that he is not alone in questioning the traditional Stratfordian theory. Others who have doubted the Stratford theory include Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, Orson Welles, Sir John Gielgud, Sir Derek Jacobi, Michael York, Jeremy Irons, Mark Rylance, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and former U.S. Supreme Court Justices John Paul Stevens and Sandra Day O’Connor. The author Henry James wrote: “I am… haunted by the conviction that the divine William is the biggest and most successful fraud ever practiced on a patient world.”
Cutler adapted and performed Mark Twain’s essay”Is Shakespeare Dead?” Please visit www.keircutler.com for more information about Keir Cutler and the Shakespeare authorship question.
