Edward de Vere: The True Author Imagine if William Shakespeare, one of the most praised English writer, was actually a fraud. There has been a question going around whether Shakespeare, supposed author of works such as Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, was the true author of the works attributed to his name. From Shakespeare’s lack of education, traveling, and manuscripts; there have been many suspects as to who the true author may be, but the most convincing arguments that have been made have put Edward de Vere, also known as the 17th Earl of Oxford, as the most convincing candidate. There have been arguments made such as his great knowledge, the markings in his bible, the correlation between his life and that of the character Hamlet, and so on.

Few authors would dare proclaim, “Read my work! It’s a bunch of hubbub over absolutely zilch.” Usually, branding a product as “nothing” is not the greatest marketing strategy. I would suggest that Shakespeare, ever the masterful strategist, is using this title to draw attention to the chaos of the “much ado,” which is ultimately born from his characters ' liberal use of deceit.
