Research and Exploration at the Folger

The Collation is a gathering of useful information and observations from staff and researchers of the Folger Shakespeare Library. The Folger is a world-class center for scholarship, learning, culture, and the arts, and this blog seeks to present bite-sized glimpses of the materials found within our walls, along with the questions and answers they prompt. The Folger’s collections include rare printed books, manuscripts, works of art, audiovisual materials, and modern scholarship, extending beyond the study of Shakespeare to early modern culture and the theatrical history of his plays. The posts you will find in the blog cover all of those topics, and more.

NoteStreams By The Collation

William Shakespeare, Poet and Gentleman

The Guardian newspaper recently published an article about new manuscript discoveries concerning the life of William Shakespeare. These discoveries, made by Heather Wolfe, are described as a decisive blow to the belief that Shakespeare was a front man for someone else—a smoking gun that disproves the claims for other candidates such as Edward de Vere, Francis Bacon, Christopher Marlowe, Sir Walter Raleigh, or Queen Elizabeth.
