  • Icons of Europe

    The association Icons of Europe, Brussels conducted in December 2011 a review of the
    Shakespeare authorship question and concludes:

    “Shakespeare was an ingenious theatrical entrepreneur.
    His company produced plays branded ‘Shakespeare’ as a result of a collaborative
    effort involving a stable of the finest playwrights and poets, notably Ben
    Jonson, as well as the royal court (e.g. noblemen could provide ideas and information).”

    This observation is specifically supported by QA24-27 of the Shakespeare
    Birthplace Trust and by HRH Prince Charles’ comment. The 60 QAs show that Shakespeare was indeed “no fraud”. However, the 60 scholars provide no evidence for him being “the true [or sole] author”. –
    Just like executive director Vikkie Heywood of the Royal Shakespeare Company is not the ‘true/sole
    author’ of RSC plays.

    The third-party Twitter entity @AvonSwan has picked up Icons
    of Europe’s report and is currently reviewing the SBT 60QAs, for which we are
    grateful.
