I found a very interesting Shakespeare website this week. Shakespeare Authorship Studies Conference. From the Concordia University in Portland Oregon. Here are the Conference Details. It was held in April 2007.
Studies that advance our understanding of other writers of the time, e.g., George Peele, Robert Greene, Francis and Anthony Bacon, Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, Edmund Spenser, Thomas Kyd, et al are featured as well.
Guess which name is not listed as other? Because it is appears to be the main area of study.
Edward De Vere - otherwise known as the 17th Earl of Oxford.
