Shakespeare’s Identity under Scrutiny

Was Shakespeare really Shakespeare? That is the question with which some writers and historians have struggled for a long time. A new possible answer is provided by Lamberto Tassinari, in his book about John Florio, an exceptional author who he claims was behind the name, Shakespeare. Already issued in English and Italian, the book is now available in France: it has been published by Le Bord de l’eau Editions and launched in Paris on the 2nd of February 2016. Its title is as provocative as its content: John Florio, alias Shakespeare. The French version of the study has been completed by Dr. Michel Vaïs, Secretary General of IATC.
