His key findings on the Poet got its own subtitles :
"To deprive himself of any inspection, was the strategy in Shakespeare's life."
" There was a painful gap between what Shakespeare wrote, and what he has lived."
"Shakespeare was absolutely determined , not going to jail."
All findings of Greenblatt would get an immediate sense if he had included the Marlowe-Shakespeare theory which states that Marlowe would have come to death unless his patron (William Cecil) would not have had the power to make him disappear from the focus of the public .
Greenblatt's intuitive knowledge that Shakespeare tryed a lifetime to escape any control of his "being known" fits like a key to the lock. Marlowe achieved his hiding by a frequent change of the author's name or initials (including Shakespeare) which could not be assigned to one person. The extent of personal and literary '"identity change", is beyond human imagination.
