Genesis of the Shakespearean Works (Volume One)

Genesis of the Shakespearean Works - front only


This book is the result of fourteen years research scrutinizing thousands of historical documents. Dr Matthews reveals never before seen facts regarding the earliest quartos and the first folio – even new research into the leather cover of the Bodleian first folio and how that particular copy came into the possession of the Turbutt family.

Dr Matthews has forensically dated the majority of the Shakespearean plays twenty years before earlier scholars, such as Rowe, Malone and Chambers – some plays dated as early as 1561, 1559 and 1558 – up to six years before William Shakespeare was born. Dr Matthews’ exemplary philosophical dissertation of the Shakespearean works and its critics, reveals much about the identity of the real authors.

A unique reference work essential to Shakespearean scholars and students alike – this book redates the Shakespearean works, scrutinizes each candidate, and definitively answers the authorship debate.

Volume 1 – (556 pages) will be available from all good bookstores in the coming weeks.

I’m excited to see the first draft cover of Genesis of the Shakespearean Works. What do you think of my Shakespearean lookalike?


His features are strikingly similar to the 1623 sketch of William Shakespeare:
















Whilst he is not a descendant of William Shakespeare, he has many of the features of the dramatist of Shakespeare, such as a small mouth with pronounced philtral ridges, pronounced tubercle of the upper lip (Cupid’s bow), hooked nose, rounded jaw line, large round skull with protruded squama frontalis (frontal bone) to the top of the forehead, long dark wavy hair typical of 16th Europeans, and eyes that depict analytical thinkers. Could it be the early depiction of Shakespeare was not William Shakespeare at all, but the real dramatists of the Shakespearean works? Can you guess which Shakespearean author candidate he descends from?
