SHAKESPEARE STUDIES & CRITICISM. Praise for Bill Rubinstein's The Myth of Rescue: 'An antidote to moral fantasy' THE OBSERVER; 'A tour de force of historical criticism' THE HISTORIAN. For over 150 years many intelligent, highly educated men and women have questioned whether William Shakespeare wrote the works attributed to him. From an obscure family in a small provincial town, Shakespeare had no formal education after the age of thirteen. His surviving handwriting consists of six signatures on legal documents. His will makes no mention of his books or manuscripts. His two daughters were illiterate. There is, in other words, a seemingly enormous gap between the meagreness of Shakespeare's background and his achievements as the greatest and most famous writer in the English language. Over the years, numerous 'candidates' have been proposed as the true author.
