Was William Shakspere, a successful businessman and minor actor from Stratford-upon-Avon, THE WILLIAM SHAKSPERE, one of the greatest writers of all time?

There is no doubt that there was a man from Stratford who lived, had children and died under the name of William Shakspere, but was his identity "stolen" to hide the real identify of William Shakspere the writer?

Professor A.J. Pointon is a chartered Engineer and Physicist, and has been the Director of Research at the University of Portsmouth; the founder and National Secretary of a union for lecturers in higher education; a Government appointed member of ACAS, a nationally rated chess player and the Chairman of the Council of the International Dickens Fellowship. Primarily Tony sees himself as a problem solver

Tony Pointon first became interested in the question of the authorship of the works of Shakspere when he was asked to defend in a debate the claim that they were by a man called William Shakspere from Stratford-upon-Avon. This led to a serious attempt to collate and substantiate the detailed evidence in favour of that case. When he found that much of what was claimed as evidence was at best suspect, at worst invented, he devoted time to what seemed an obvious problem for solution. This book is the result

The author does not aim to identify who was hidden so carefully behind the pseudonym, William Shakspere", but he does point a way to the resolution of that problem

The aim of this book is to restore to William Shakspere his real identity and show that he is a man who is worthy of a proper study in his own right
