The “Anonymous” movie, in which it is said that the real author of Shakespeare’s work is a Count from Oxford, displeased the academic community. The British academic members are now getting ready to release a campaign against the Anonymous movie.
Count Edward De Vere is, according to the Anonymous movie, the true genius behind the sonnets and plays signed by William Shakespeare.
“What shocked me is that the theory was also spread inside the ranks of academic people” Professor Stanley Wells from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust said. He fears that the idea of the movie rapidly becomes popular.
“This is stupid. The movie suggests that Edward De Vere was actually the illegitimate child of Queen Elizabeth. The entire script is absurd and makes us look foolish” Elizabeth Imlay from De Vere society says.
