London: British actress and director Dame Janet Suzman has lashed out at two acclaimed Shakespearean actors who believe that the Bard was not the true author of the plays.
“You have to be a conspiracy theorist to imagine the earl secretly wrote 37 plays, performed and printed over a quarter of a century, without being found out,” she said.“And you have to be a snob if you just hate it that the greatest poet the world has produced was born into the humble aldermanic classes of a provincial town.“How strange it is that Jacobi and Rylance, hundreds of years later, with their outstanding acting instincts, should embrace such a haughty view of the man who has made them as big as they are.“We have seen a dozen times how thrillingly they themselves can conjure up fantastical character studies of fictional persons – without ever having been crowned king or murdered a rival in real life.“It’s what actors do for heaven’s sakes, and Shakespeare was one too. It’s called imagination,” she added. ANI
