Valpo (Valparaiso University alumni magazine)
William Farina’s book discusses why William Shakespeare could have been the pen named used by Edward DeVere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, to disguise his true identity. It studies documented facts on the authorship of works of literature written more than 400 years ago, and generates debate and controversy. The book offers a fresh and easy-to-understand analysis and is a must-read for academics, theater-goers, literature enthusiasts and anyone with an intellectual curiosity about Western civilization’s most famous writer.
