This clearly shows that someone else may have wrote the plays but did not include their name, so William thought he could plagiarize and pretend he wrote them. This also shows that Shakespeare didn’t include his name to prove that he wrote them. William clearly did not write the plays because Looney searched through old documents and found an unknown name in his documents and Shakespeare did not include an authors’ name in his so called plays. Most People believe that William wasn’t educated enough to write or author his own plays. In this quote, “People believe William was an untutored genius,” it seems like people think he did not go to school at all.
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. According to Amanda Mabillard” The authorship craze seems to have started in 1857 when American write Delia Salter Bacon published The Philosophy of the Plays of Shakespeare Unfolded in which she argued that Lord Francis Bacon wrote Shakespeare’s plays.”(Mabillard 1) This states that Shakespeare either plagiarized the plays or did not write them at all.

Many people believe he wrote the plays that are in his name but as research shows he did not have the right education, he did not have the means, motive, or opportunity, and he did not publish any of his plays while he was alive. Since William Shakespeare did not have the right education it is impossible for him to write these plays the way they were written. For example, according to Amanda Mabillard’s article “Shakespeare likely had some lessons in English, Latin, composition and the study of Latin authors like Seneca, Cicero, Ovid, Virgil, and Horace which would have been the focus of his literary training” (Mabillard para. 3). Even though he had basic education in elementary teachings, the education he had is not enough to write these plays so strategically, and with words so advanced.
