Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 84 Katherine Chiljan

Sep 03, 2020, 04:18 PM
For many, William Shakespeare is the greatest playwright of all time, his works consistently performed on film, television and on stage across the world. With works such as Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, Othello and many more being household names, his legacy transcends continents, cultures and language.

Yet, for the last 175 years, people have questioned if William Shakespeare really is the man we are led to believe. Many point to a man with no history, no educational history and a missing decade as sure signs that William Shakespeare is a ghost of his time, a pseudonym for someone else, ostracised by the Establishment of the early 17th century.

To discuss this, I am joined by author Katherine Chiljan to hear the argument for the real William Shakespeare, The Earl of Oxford, Edward De Vere. A publish author, traveller and intellectual giant of his time who knew far more than the established narrative of William Shakespeare and some who actually had experience of travel, law, medicine, sport and more besides.

We are left with many questions and I thank Katherine for joining me to discuss this intriguing conundrum Katherine's book can be found here:
