SHAKESPEARE WAS A WOMAN AND OTHER HERESIES How Doubting the Bard Became the Biggest Taboo in Literature

by | Read by Eunice Wong

History • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Eunice Wong delivers this investigation of the scholarly study of Shakespeare. Journalist and literary critic Elizabeth Winkler takes a deep dive into the study of Shakespeare's identity--specifically, how the controversial idea that he was someone other than the glove-maker's son from Stratford has been squelched by special interests for centuries. Wong cautiously delivers each word, explanation, and citation of facts, studies, and heresies the author draws upon to make her case. Her narration never flags or falters as example after example is parsed and analyzed. Wong's unemotional performance is broken by vocal pauses to signal the recitation of play lines, poems, and documentary evidence supporting the author's hypothesis.
