Evidence of Shakespeare Not Writing His Plays How would the world react if they found out the famous William Shakespeare did not write his plays? If the conspiracy that Shakespeare was not the actual author of his words was revealed to be true, the world would be devastated. The issue is that Shakespeare might have not written his plays. Prior knowledge to this matter is that there are no records of Shakespeare ever going to school. Other knowledge is that he did not travel enough to describe his settings.
