The violence of Academia towards „Anti-Stratfordians“ is unprofessional, troublesome and unjustified, since there is nothing neither morally or scientifically wrong in questioning Shakespearean authorship nor is it unreasonable to raise →serious doubts, wether Shakspere ("of the records") is identical with Shakespeare ("of the canon"). At present university professors of English Literature departments are deliberately and systematically dedicated to the silencing of anyone who expresses doubt.(→s.Blog186- Gary Taylor)
They shout down „authorship doubters“ (synonym to „Shakespeare deniers“) rather than giving reasonable answers to countless reasonable, but unanswered questions (e.g. Click →"Quiz" or →"unanswerable" of this Homepage )
High profile Shakesperare experts, professors →Jonathan Bate, →Stephen Greenblatt and →Gary Taylor all have distinguished themselves by associating Shakespeare doubters (→"Anti-Stratfordians" s.Blog 148) not only as "Shakespeare deniers" but by specifically comparing them with the group of ‘Holocaust deniers’.
After →Jonathan Bate (2003) and →Steven Greenblatt (s. also Blog 152) →Gary Taylor Blog 186) is now third in the row of high profile Shakespeare Experts and Stratfordians who compared Anti-Stratfordians ("Post-Shakespeareans") with Holocaust deniers.
Apparently they seem to have no other means anymore than to lash about ..
