Who wrote Shakespeare’s plays?

The debate on the authorship of Shakespeare’s works has been raging for several centuries. Scholars are not closer to agreeing on any one and there is a strong possibility that there will be no conclusion in the near future. English professors took central stage in this debate… until now.

An astrophysicist entered the race, hoping that he will come up with a solution through the rigorous application of statistical analysis. Peter Sturrock, a Stanford University professor, in his latest book AKA Shakespeare: A Scientific Approach to the Authorship Question is employing a Socratic method in order to assess the existing evidence. In the course of an intense Dialogue four fictional characters present their individual perspectives. In the end, Sturrock allows for the reader to come up with his/ her own conclusions.
