Episode 7 – The Question of Shakespeare Authorship

We’ve all studied Shakespeare. You read him in school. You performed a soliloquy in drama class. You’ve watched all the bad coming of age teen remakes. Did you know, though, that Shakespeare didn’t actually write any of his works? At least, that’s the theory, and we discuss the historical thought of the day that inspired this hotly debated and contemptuous accusation. We also explore an area of pursuasive argument known as the Argument of Authority, that just might explain why people today continue to jump on the band wagon of Shakespeare “doubters” whether they have a literary background or not.
