1909 1ed Mark Twain Is Shakespeare Dead? Francis Bacon Authorship Plays English "The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time." 鈥 Mark Twain Mark Twain and his works were immensely popular all on their own. Such notable characters as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn stood out about other 19th-century literary characters, and not just in the United States. One of Twain's lesser-known works was his book 'Is Shakespeare Dead?', a work in which Twain discusses the authenticity of the authorship of the works of Shakespeare. Twain, like many conspiracy theorists, claim that Sir Francis Bacon wrote the famed plays attributed to Shakespeare. In addition to the skepticism on Shakespeare, Twain describes scenes from his own early life in which he explored this controversy with a steamboat captain. This rare first edition is a fine addition to a Twain collection with controversial content suitable for Shakespearean scholars. Item number: #7154 Price: $399 TW ... Read more
