William Shakespeare is one of the most
elusive and mysterious men in history. Virtually everything known about
the facts of his life seems to belie the extraordinary genius of “his”
plays and poems.
a result, over the past century and a half, many intelligent and
perceptive people have come to the conclusion that Shakespeare was a
‘front man’ or ‘smoke screen’ for the true author of the works.
on five years of in-depth research, Brenda James and William D
Rubinstein’s book The Truth Will Out unveils the most compelling
candidate as the author of the greatest works in English literature.
discovery came as Brenda James was working on trying to discover the
identity of the mysterious Mr W H, mentioned in the Dedication to the
Sonnets. What emerged from her work amazed her. The code revealed the
phrase “thy poet” and the name of Sir Henry Neville, a now forgotten
Elizabethan politician and landowner.
Intrigued but needing more
information she started to research Neville. One remarkable discovery
led to another, most based on previously unknown primary documentary
evidence. Finally she was convinced by the shear weight of evidence.
She realised that she had discovered the identity of man who had
written the greatest works in English Literature.
To confirm her
findings she approached Professor William D Rubinstein, an influential
figure in the authorship debate and an Associate of The Shakespeare
Authorship Trust. At that time he was an agnostic in the debate,
unconvinced by any of the known candidates. He was so totally convinced
that he agreed to revise and co-author the book, bringing his
substantial expertise to the work.
Together they believe that Brenda
James’s truly incredible discovery has, at a stroke, solved
comprehensively and categorically all the mysteries and puzzles
surrounding the world’s greatest literary genius.
