An English teacher once told me that there is a possibility that Shakespeare was actually multiple people. I guess because the books have such different writing styles from each other, even within the same book sometimes. I personally don't care enough to put energy into it though. The theory makes sense, him being one person makes sense. They're great books, so whatever.

It is a blobfish - they live in a really deep part of the ocean but when they are pulled up there is less pressure so they kind of go all floppy. That is a dead blobfish - when alive and at the right pressure level they look very different.

My AP Lit teacher was just talking about this today. There are tons of different theories as to whether it was actually William Shakespeare who wrote those plays, if he was even a guy, or if it was many different authors.

But seriously. I can see why you wouldn't want to argue over it with your mother AGAIN, but I think this question as to whether Shakespeare truly existed or not is a really interesting question that we have yet to answer completely. The same sort of debate transpires for Homer's existence.

The man William Shakespeare definitely existed, we have found records of his baptism and death (nothing of his birth). The question isn't if he was a real person, but whether or not he actually wrote all of the plays and poems.

This is actually the most important part of the FML, which i also was asking myself and a lot of people seem to miss. For all we know OP is someone who also had a argument claiming the Titanic was only a movie and not a real boat.

That's a pretty important question, since, while there's no doubt a person by the name of "William Shakespeare" existed it's less clear if he was the one who wrote all the famous plays.
