Strangely, two centuries later so-called "Shakespeare experts" have recognized those "facts" as null and void, claiming that these works [for stylistic, formal and structural reasons] cannot have originated by Shakspere. They termed these works Shakespeare's Apokrypha. The dogma since then is : the Apokrypha are not Shakespeare's work ! Strangely enough, they made a remarkable exception for "Pericles", which alone was allowed to belong to the Shakespeare Canon.-
▷ »Locrine« (1595) »by W.S.«
▷ »...Sir John Oldcastle (1600) »written by William Shakespeare»
▷ »The London Prodigal« (1605) »by William Shakespeare«.
▷ »The Puritan,.......... (1607) »written by W.S.«
▷ »A Yorkshire Tragedy« (1608) written by W.Shakspeare
▷ »The Funeral Elegy« (1612) »by W.S. «
▷ »Pericles« (1612) by William Shakespeare «)
and others .
Conclusion: All these bizarre, outlandish grotesqueness could only happen, because nobody was able to develop a consistent idea of the contemporary Shakespeare authorship problem. The deleterious academic Dogma is valid until today:
There does not exist an Authorship Problem. Full Stop!
Today the educated general public has no means of knowing how and why these "dictatorial apocryphal decisions" came about, which (few) persons were responsible and why an exception was made for Pericles?
There are significant arguments to resolve this situtation by introducing the Marlowe-Shakespeare Thesis.- You may follow upcoming blogs that deal with individual works of the Apocrypha...
