The Shakespeare Conspiracy

The Shakespeare Series

This video provides a stimulating and controversial point of view that is bound to provoke classroom discussion and independent study of the "authorship" issue. Drawing on original 16th century documents and the Oxford Bible, this film makes a full investigation into the lives of both Edward de Vere and William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon. Revealing the former as someone already in his own lifetime revered as the best for comedies, and the latter as a man who led a double life: prosperous merchant at home, well-paid frontman to the Elizabethan era's greatest poet in London. This documentary also examines modern attitudes of scholars with a vested interest in the Stratfordian myth and their suppression of relevant facts to this very day.
