Author Katherine Chiljan joins S.T. Patrick to discuss the Shakespeare conspiracy. Was William Shakespeare who we have long been taught he was? Was he someone else entirely different? Why would his authorship have been hidden? Was it a consortium? Were there women involved? What about Sir Francis Bacon, Christopher Marlowe, and the Earl of Derby? How does Hamlet hold key clues to his identity? What were the real reasons for the caricature of Richard III? Who is Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford?
Katherine Chiljan is the author of Shakespeare Suppressed: The Uncensored Truth About Shakespeare and His Works. There is also a fine website where more information can be found.

Beyond fascinating! A casual fan of “Shake-speare” since high school, I became interested in the subject of authorship around the time the film “Anonymous” with Rhys Ifans was released in 2011 With just a hint of information I became quite skeptical of the official version, primarily due to the extremely scant evidence regarding the man from Stratford.
Ms. Chiljan’s interview lays out all the main issues on the topic, and makes a powerful case for Edward de Vere, as well as the reasons why other possible authors who have been suggested over the years (Bacon, Marlowe, etc) cannot fit the bill. Fortunately I was able to obtain her book via library inter-loan a few weeks ago, and highly recommend both it and the aforementioned film for those interested in the subject.
Brava to Ms Chiljan, and Bravo to the Great Author, the spear shaker, whomever he was! (Oh, and uh, thanks to S.T. for conducting this interview!)
