The talk was based on my newly published book, Shakespeare Suppressed: The Uncensored Truth About Shakespeare and His Works (2011). It is a history book, filled with contemporary facts about Shakespeare with more than 600 footnotes. Why should his or her opinion about a Shakespeare history book matter? But, alas, this is not an unusual reaction.

Katherine Chiljan, author ofShakespeare Suppressed: The Uncensored Truth about Shakespeare and his Works, joins us to investigate. Poet Ape. Interview with Sabrina Feldman. Ben Jonson and other writers of Shakespeare’s time satirized a playwright-actor who stole their words and passed them off as his own. In epigrams and plays they attacked the plagiarist, who made a career from their works. Dr. Sabrina Feldman argues that the lampoons take aim at one highly successful playwright: the author of the Shakespeare Apocrypha.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE is the most celebrated and most read poet and dramatist in history, but his personal life and artistic life is a mystery. How did he obtain the extensive learning and experience displayed in his works? When were his plays written and why were his works so often pirated by printers? Although publicly lauded during his lifetime, why was Shakespeare's death not noticed by those in the literary world near the time that it had occurred? These are only a few problems that the Shakespeare professor cannot answer definitively after two centuries of scholarship.

Much contemporary evidence, however, is available that can shed light on many of these problems -- evidence that gets ignored because it does not fit the experts' picture of Shakespeare. This evidence overwhelmingly indicates that 'William Shakespeare' was the great author's pen name, and that he was a nobleman. It shows that he wrote decades earlier than believed, and initially for the private entertainment of Queen Elizabeth I and her court.

The pen name idea is easy enough to grasp, but it becomes more complex and tangled by the fact that there was another man, christened 'William Shakspere', who lived during the same period. A resident of Stratford-upon-Avon, this man was involved in acting companies and theaters in London. Not one shred of evidence, however, proves the 'Stratford Man' was the great author during his lifetime, and neither he nor his descendents ever made such a claim. These two very different men merged into one identity after both of their deaths, and it was no accident, as this book will explain.

The lack of hard facts about Shakespeare and his career has caused the experts to write biographies full of fiction and fantasy. Those who love and appreciate Shakespeare deserve better. Fully documented, Shakespeare Suppressed is a valuable resource for those who want to learn the unadulterated truth about Shakespeare and his works. The book debunks the experts' case for the Stratford Man as the great author, and exposes the misleading preface of the First Folio. Features an appendix detailing 93 'too early' allusions to the plays that destroy orthodox composition dates, and 27 plates.

Wel
I have read Chiljan's book cover-to-cover, and relied on it in an article I am working on, and it is absolutely fascinating and rigorously researched. Chiljan's writing style is calm, lucid, and rational (more than one can say for many reviewers on Amazon defending the orthodox Stratfordian authorship theory).

I cannot really improve on "Destro's" spot-on review (though I don't necessarily agree with every statement made in it), so I will simply quote (and endorse) some of his key points as follows with which I do wholeheartedly agree:

"Ms. Chiljan has written one of the best books on the topic of the authorship question. It is a great scholarly contribution to the area of Shakespeare studies. She has complied in one place so many facts and figures and citations that, when added together, prove to any open mind beyond a reasonable doubt that ..." (as I would say, though "Destro" goes farther): there is at least a serious question about the authorship of Shakespeare.

I would actually go further myself. Like Chiljan, I am an Oxfordian. But her book does not specifically delve much into that, so I will not pursue it in this review (though she does offer some fascinating and thoughtful conjectures, in addition to her rigorously and factually documented points).

"Destro" continues (again with my whole-hearted agreement):

"Supporters of the traditional Shakespeare orthodoxy often claim that the Shakespeare-doubting started relatively recently. However, Ms Chiljan documents case after case of Elizabethan authors who referred to the shroud of mystery surrounding their "best" poet and playwright, often implying his noble status and need for anonymity, as well as case after case of authors writing about a man of simple wit who was benefiting from, or outright stealing, a great writer's work. Coincidence? ..."

"This book is well-detailed and documented, and the argument is logical and well-supported by the facts."

"Destro" makes a crucial point in highlighting Chiljan's many proofs that the Shakespeare authorship question is NOT some modern fad, nor did it arrive first in the 1850s with Delia Bacon (a highly intelligent scholar; sad that some defenders of orthodoxy mock her for later suffering from mental illness, especially as her nervous breakdown may have been aggravated by ferocious attacks on her from defenders of the Stratfordian view that she threatened). No, authorship doubts arose as early as the 1590s (possibly even 1580s), during Shakespeare's own time. Doubts and questions about who wrote the works published either anonymously or under the name "Shakespeare" began 30 YEARS BEFORE the FIRST published linkage to Stratford (in the 1623 Folio)!

This work is excellent but very scholarly in its approach. It is not a book that I would recommend for a class in high school. But it is an intelligent work of great effort that will help prove beyond a doubt that the Earl of Oxford was the real person behind the pseudonym Shake-speare.

I purchased this book in 2012, but only got around to reading it in 2016, and I'm sorry I waited so long.

Ms. Chiljan thoroughly and meticulously examines- and systematically demolishes- the traditional attribution of the works of the great author Shakespeare to the man from Stratford, William Shakspere. The book does not put forward the case for the particular person or persons behind the plays and poems, but it is very important to understand first why the works were cloaked in anonymity to begin with and why such a fraud was perpetrated for decades thereafter (and ultimately accepted without question by academia).

Read this and prepare to question all you have been taught by supposed "Shakespeare" scholars.

Highly recommended!

Nothing here will convince a died-in-the-wool Stratfordian, who most likely will do nothing more than skim it. Likewise, most of Chiljan's points will already be known by an informed Oxfordian. So this book, like many similar volumes, is mostly for the uninformed who is willing to be skeptical about the common received wisdom. As such, she makes the points well, casts doubts about the orthodox authorship that Stratfordians will be willfully blind to, and provides a good introduction the case that supplements, but does not replace, similar cases made by Diana Price and Charleton Ogburn. A good addition to an Oxfordian's shelf, and a good introduction for someone willing to suspend received belief..

Ms. Chiljan has written a book for the ages. Instead of pounding on with evidence of why Oxford is the true "Bard", she attacks all of the flimsy facts of the Stratford man's authorship. How can anyone who reads this fine bit of scholorship be unmoved? The chapters on the Sonnets hit me like a thunderbolt! I got out my tattered copy of the Sonnets and the words made sense. I've read and re-read these poems since the 70's and something was always missing for me. Now they seem so real and full of meaning. Shakespeare Suppressed is one of the best books I've ever read and it changed my world view. Bravo Ms. Chiljan!

Dense at times, but very well researched.

Good conclusions and final chapter on the Pembroke's
involvement with the First Folio. This book supports
Whittemore's thesis of the author's concealment being
determined by political reasons. Shockling enough, the author does
not quote Whittemore nor his leading contributions on
the same themes this book arrives at. This was a great surprise
for me.

All in all, purchase recommended.

Did the man from Stratford write the plays and sonnets attributed to him? The case for the scarcity of strong evidence is well made in this book, and the discerning reader will see how there's more to the question of authorship than has been generally understood.
This wonderfully researched and documented historical analysis of the truth that Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford was the actual author of the works of "Shakes-peare" is an excellent read. How could the truth behind the legend of Shakespeare have been covered up for so long? This book will illuminate why and how that happened. The author has left no stone unturned in the search for the truth about the great author.
