Who Is Shakespeare?

I think Shakespeare was the author of all his plays and sonnets. The arguments against his authorship are too weak for me to think otherwise. For example, those against his authorship believe someone coming from a rural community such as Stratford could never have the vocabulary that Shakespeare had. Even though he came from a small town, Shakespeare was well-educated because of the government posts his father held. Another argument is that nothing of his was published before his death. Shakespeare co-wrote several works while working as an actor in London and these were published with his name. The following sites helped me write my essay for Quiz 4. Hopefully they can help some of you. Some of the websites are repeated, the first one I liked the best from a fellow classmate!
