[In stock in Australia, for immediate delivery] A modern analysis of the mystery surrounding Shakespeare's identity, written by the award-winning author of ’Royal Blood’, explores multiple theories, identifying inconsistencies within the popular Stratford-upon-Avon hypothesis while considering the less-supported possibility of Shakespeare’s nobility. For centuries, scholars have debated the true identity of the author of the poems and plays attributed to William Shakespeare. Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, Charles Dickens, John Gielgud, and Derek Jacobi, among others, have cast irresolvable doubt on the Stratford man and proposed alternatives from rival playwrights Ben Jonson and Christopher Marlowe to Queen Elizabeth I. Why did Shakespeare leave behind not a single work in his own hand? So, Fields asks in his tantalising conclusion, was this actually a magnificent collaboration between two men, a partnership protected for centuries by the greatest conspiracy in literary history? Blending biography and historical investigation with vibrant scholarship and storytelling, Players revolutionises our understanding of the greatest writer - or writers - in our history.
