in →DIO "click Bard-Beard Who wrote Shakespeare?"
Dennis Rawlins (U.S. astronomer, historian and author) dealt with the centuries old literary-historical problems of Shakespeare's authorship. He comes to the → inescapable conclusion that Marlowe (as the author of the works) is clearly superior to all other candidates. He writes:
" Among the serious candidates, he alone Has the Crucial attributes and distinctive features of Shakespeare's, Which We now list:
(D10) He is the only one for which there are compelling reasons for hiding forever in anonymity
(D11) The track record of his writing plays is very much like William Shakespeare's
(D12) There are no "timeline" problems - a neat Marlowe-Shakespeare bridgelet instead- in contrast to the chronology difficulties of Stratfordians and Oxfordians.
(D13) Marlowe was as lowborn as Shakespeare among the major parties to the controversy, Marlovians alone cannot sanely be deemed elitist
(D14) The "Star Chamber" was pushing Marlowe towards a swift and desparate singular choice between torture-death or escape back into an alias-anonymity that was not entirely new to one who was already part of spy ring
(D15)the preferability of a simple , plausible, predictive and unifying theory which solves the Shakespeare case's many outstanding mysteries (s.120 examples in the →QUIZ)
(D16) Marlowe possessed all the connections and definitely the motifs, to escpe the imminent torture-death . In escaping he became Shakespeare just as maturely as his former self.
D16" Argument alone idicates (in addition to countless similar arguments ... just think of Shakespeare's will) that Shakespeare academic experts were forced early to leave their mind at the cloak room of the Shakespeare authorship problem or largely to dispense with him.
