OUR SHAKESPEARE: JAMES SHAPIRO
Pre-eminent Shakespearean scholar, Columbia University professor James Shapiro convinces that Shakespeare matters. His books include 1606: William Shakespeare and the Year of Lear, and 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare. His Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare? dealt definitively to the baloney peddled by authorship conspiracists. The most accessible of Bardologists is in conversation with Michael Neill.
