Review Show

Writing about web page

The BBC's latest edition of The Review Show is still online for a few days here. It's the Authorship Question (ie the conspiracy theory side) rather than my area of authorship that they're discussing, but it's still of general interest, and I strongly recommend Jim Shapiro's new book. The Authorship Question persists because people shout it down without listening to it; so, for a respected academic and writer to devote four years and a weighty volume to a serious consideration of the ongoing debates is truly refreshing, and hopefully a game-changer. Oxfordians and Baconians have no excuse not to engage with a book that gives the question a proper hearing.


I’m Peter Kirwan, a final year doctoral student in the English Department at Warwick, and this is my PhD blog.

Conferences, reviews, articles, thoughts and links relating to my interests in the Shakespeare apocrypha, early modern drama, authorship and performance.
