The Two Noble Kinsmen, composed in 1613 is credited in a 1634 Stationer’s Registry entry as being the work of both William Shakespeare and John Fletcher. Described by First Folio publishers John Hemminges and Henry Condell who said "His mind and hand went together and what he thought, he uttered with that easiness that we have scarce received from him a blot in his papers.", there were many who did not like Shakespeare’s work. Furthermore, Shakespeare is said to have had a vocabulary of some 29,066 words.

Robert Greene really got the ball rolling by calling Shakespeare "an upstart crow" in his 1592 pamphlet entitled "Greene’s Groatsworth of Wit" whilst Samuel Pepys ruthlessly described the 1595 "A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream" as "the most insipid, ridiculous play that I ever saw in my life." Even Voltaire stepped into the ring by saying that "Shakespeare is a drunken savage with some imagination whose plays please only in London and Canada," before adding that "Shakespeare is the Corneille of London, but everywhere else he is a great fool". An average person’s today might use just 2000 words used in everyday conversation.

Did Shakespeare ever collaborate in the writing of his plays?

Surprisingly, Shakespeare is said to have penned Henry VIII with the likely help of noted dramatist John Fletcher between 16.

Was Shakespeare a "property developer" in Stratford?

A problem for the Edward de Vere line is that many of Shakespeare’s plays were said to have been written after Edward de Vere’s death in 1604. The Oxfordians argue quite reasonably, that proof of Shakespeare’s authorship is largely circumstantial and sketchy at best.

Recently both Hamlet, A Midsummer’s Night and Romeo and Juliet have been successfully adapted to film. Thus any depiction of such a love affair during the writing of Romeo and Juliet would have to have meant Shakespeare was cheating on Anne.

Finally the depiction that Shakespeare was short on cash around 1595 simply doesn’t wash; just two years later, he bought one of the largest properties in Stratford called The New Place and is considered to have penned 9 plays by 1595.
