On the occasion of the release of James Shapiro's book "Contested Will" in 2010 Daryl Pinksen, the author of the Book "Marlowe's Ghost" wrote an Essay entitled -> "Shapiros Straw man" in which he concluded, that Shapiro casually tars all Shakespeare doubters with the same brush, implying that the Marlowe case, like the Oxfordian and Baconian ones, is dependent on reading Marlowe's life out of the Plays. Pinksen declared Shapiros method and opinion "as simply false" because Marlowe's case would be different!
Pinksen's logic is hard to understand especially since he is certain at the end, that ...." there is one, and only one writer with the proven ability to write verse at a Shakespearean Level and that this writer is Christopher Marlowe."
Of course, as Pinksen underlines, comparisons of Marlowe's texts to the Shakespere Plays and Poems are of utmost importance. (s. Pinksens Video!) But if Marlowe is the true Shakespeare why shouldn't we also be dependent on reading Marlowe's life out of the plays of the one, and only one writer [Marlowe alias Shakespeare]. Must not specific biographic aspects of life even fit better compared to Oxford or Bacon,?
That's in fact the case and has been elaborated in Chapt. 8-10 of "The True Shakespeare: Christopher Marlowe."
