Who Wrote SHAKESPEARE? Defending the Bard

Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford

Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, whom many, including Sigmund Freud, Helen Keller, Sir Derek Jacobi Keanu Reeves, and Anonymous' Roland Emmerich, believe actually wrote the plays attributed to William Shakespeare

on Thirteen: Fri., October 21st at 1:30 AM (Note special time)

on CUNY TV:

Sat., October 22nd at 8:30 PM
Sun., October 23rd at 12:30 PM and
Mon., October 24th at 7:30 AM, 1:30 PM & 7:30 PM

Historian James Shapiro, of Columbia University discusses the centuries old Shakespeare “authorship” controversy: the belief by thousands over the last four centuries that William Shakespeare, was, in fact, not responsible for writing the plays attributed to him. This conspiracy theory is now the subject of the major motion picture Anonymous, as well as of Shapiro’s book, Contested Will. Read what Professor Shapiro recently had to say in The New York Times:“Hollywood Dishonors the Bard.”

    After receiving your notices about an interview with James Shapiro about his book, “Contested Will” I was disappointed NOT to have that interview on CUNY at 8:30 PM Saturday, October 22nd. Did I misread your notice. It listed various times for Theater Talk, featuring a discussion about Shakespeare. Please advise when this program will be available. Thank you
