Bacon and Shakespeare authorship mystery


Brian Jarvis investigates the controversial theory that Francis Bacon, a poet and playwrite in the time of Queen Elizabeth I, was, in fact, the real bard and author of the plays and sonnets of Shakespeare. The site makes a strong case that the most celebrated writer in the English language was not the man from Stratford. Rather, 'Shakespeare' was a clever nom de plume used by Francis Bacon, a learned Elizabethan, to publish his incomparable, but often politically scandalous, writings.
