Traditionalists might blanch, but for some, the identity of William Shakespeare is not positively decided.

They have trouble squaring the Bard’s works with the life of the presumed author from Stratford-upon-Avon, holding that only an aristocrat – which he was not – could have penned such elevated prose. But if he didn’t, who did? Felicia Hardison Londré, the Curators’ Professor of Theatre at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, is among those who point to Edward De Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, a flamboyant courtier poet of the time and a theater and literary patron.
