Spotlight On ANONYMOUS: Did Shakespeare Actually Author All Of His Plays?
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 15, 2011

Did William Shakespeare really write all of those plays? Mere proposition of said query's relative validity is more often than not met with confused looks, pretentious stares and general disdain for even entertaining such edgy ideas. Yet, are the plays not too worldly and wordy for a middle-class man to have composed completely by himself - even an actor who owned his own theater, the Globe; as Shakespeare, the man, most certainly did (any way you tell it)? Does it take anything away from these great works to consider for a moment or two that perhaps there was at least some outside influence on the texts to these plays, many of which are often cited as the finest literary works in the English language - and a legitimate theory given the fact co-authorship was even admitted at the time insofar as PERICLES, TIMON OF ATHENS and others are concerned. The case of the authorship of Shakespeare's plays has been a hot-button topic amongst critics, scholars and many in academe for centuries - and it even reached the Supreme Court in 1987 - and it is only now, with the worldwide release of ANONYMOUS, that these issues are being taken on in a dramatically compelling and filmatic way - played out much like the plays of intrigue and betrayal amongst kings and queens that we have come to love so much from Shakespeare's works. At the end of the day - or, should I say, at the end of the play - does it really matter as long as what you have witnessed onstage or onscreen spoke to you in a special, memorable way? Does knowing the identity of the author really matter as long as the plays enacted have an affect? Such are only a few of the many controversial questions being posed by the filmmakers behind the new film ANONYMOUS, opening in movie theaters nationwide on October 28, foremost among them being the director of the film himself, Roland Emmerich and the screenwriter, John Orloff, who have been trying to get this project off the ground for the better part of a decade. Tales of stolen authorial identity are as old and oft-told as many of the Bard's greatest hits, so it should come as no surprise that ANONYMOUS manages to present the facts as entertainingly as the plays presented within it. After all, the battle of the Oxfordians versus the Stratfordians has a certain royal Shakespearean ring to it, does it not? (more...)
