"Will the real William Shakespeare please stand up!"--an original essay by Daniel Pinci.I remember it like it was yesterday. I was six years old on December 24th, the night before the big day. I got to stay up late and put cookies & milk out for Santa. I had been such a good boy that year and I was waiting for the ultimate gifts. After loosing the battle with my eyelids I found myself in my own bed suddenly awakened by my overwhelming anticipation to meet the infamous chimney god himself. Though it was still the middle of the night, my eyes popped open and I ran to the door pasting my face upon the wall and wedging my nose in the crack just enough to enable me to peek down the hallway. Needless to say, it wasn't Santa wrapping my gifts that night.To this day, I still have trouble believing that my parents had so ingeniously disguised themselves as Santa Clause. And I can still remember the confusion that went through my head. All those years of believing so deeply in someone, just to find out that they are nothing more than another's creation.Ironically, I have found myself facing that same confusion once again. Only this time it is on a much grander scale. The plaguing question; Is William Shakespeare really William Shakespeare? Or is he, like Santa, the product of another's creation."What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"Any one, who knows literature, knows that this quote is from Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare. Right? Well it is from Romeo and Juliet, but how would you feel if I told you that Shakespeare, as he has been accepted for the last four hundred years, is nothing but a pseudonym for none other than Christopher Marlowe? Intrigued as I was, I'm sure! But if you know anything about Christopher Marlowe you may say "Christopher Marlowe died on May 30th, 1593."Oh no he did not; he died in 'early' 1622, which in those days meant April or May. The year then, ended on March 25th. I could have said that 'William Shakespeare' died in 1611 and I would still have been correct. The actor, known to the general public as 'William Shakespeare' was killed in the autumn of 1611.Confused? You are meant to be, the whole conspiracy was set up in order to convince the world at large that Christopher Marlowe died on the date that the history books tell us that he did. But he did not!It has been suspected that Marlowe's death was a sham, ever since Leslie Hotson discovered the coroner's report of the incident in 1925. But nobody has had any proof that he was alive after that date. Many literature analysists have...
