William Shakespeare is regarded as one of the most talented and famous playwrights of all time. But there is research being conducted to try to prove that he did not write or produce his own plays or poetry. Many historians and English writing experts believe that he used someone else’s ideas, wrote them down and produced them. Many people believe that he even stole plays from other people. From what we know about him—which is not a lot—he was not highly educated which leads people to believe that he could not have written his spectacular plays.
Is Shakespeare a Fraud? Who is this mysterious play write? For nearly 500 years, historians have been baffled as to how Shakespeare could have authored so many plays, if it truly was Shakespeare.

Shakespeare Did Not Write the Famous Plays William Shakespeare was the supposed author of many well-known plays. A question many philosophers ask is what evidence is there to confirm or deny that William Shakespeare authored the plays? William Shakespeare did not write the plays because he plagiarized them, more evidence points to Francis Bacon, and he did not have the necessary education to have written them. Shakespeare did not write the plays because he either plagiarized them or did not write them at all.

The insufficient records have added even more mystery as none of the original manuscripts have survived and were possibly destroyed to conceal the identity of the actual author. Although Shakespeare is considered by many to be the greatest playwright of all time, much speculation surrounds his authenticity through theories based on linguistic and historical problems as well as criticism. Since the four centuries that have passed since Shakespeare’s times, several theories have been developed which claim that others may be the legitimate authors of his works. The playwrights usually focused on are Francis Bacon, Edward de Vere, William Stanley, Roger Manners and Christopher Marlowe.
To have all the knowledge that is portrayed in the works, the author must have accomplished many things.

One is where Mark Twain once said that only a riverboat captain can handle riverboat slang, and there were some things that you have to just experience. “Where would Shakespeare, have learned the lawyer slang, court slang, soldier slang, and all the terminology that fills the plays?”1 1Some other facts that make me believe that Shakespeare never wrote these plays is that no plays, no poems, and not a single letter Shakespeare’s own handwriting has ever been found.

One does not simply become the father of English literature. To be coined such a grandiose title requires the approval of many, and especially the king of England.

If he had attended the village school, he would have learned only small Latin and possibly Greek. Never having attended university, it draws many doubts on how the man from Stratford gain the knowledge the plays reveal of the law and medicine. Never having been at sea, it is unclear how Shakespeare gained the knowledge the plays reveal of navigation. It has been questioned how Shakespeare- a hick, uses the language of kings and countrymen.
