ATG Quirkies: Emilia Bassano: A new contender in the Shakespeare identity debate

by | May 17, 2019 | 0 comments

In this provocative piece in The Atlantic, author Elizabeth Winkler weighs in on the Shakespeare “authorship controversy.” She notes that although the controversy is almost as old as the plays themselves, it has yet to result in a compelling alternative to the “Bard of Avon.”

 

But Ms. Winkler contends that maybe that because “until recently, no one was looking in the right place.” She then goes on to make the case for a woman, Emilia Bassano, a contemporary of Shakespeare and a published poet in her own right.
