Shakespeare – Real or a figment of imagination?

World’s best playwrights, poems, sonnets and many other stories have been attributed to Shakespeare as the sole author. His plays have been very famous and talked about for many centuries. The literature written by him is rich with life, travel, romance, irony, jibes, morals and stories. Many of the writings of this author have been adapted to serve as the scripts of many Hollywood and Bollywood movies and have been appreciated. His plays hold a great importance even in today’s world. Now that Shakespeare has been hailed to be one of the greatest and most prolific writers the history has ever produced, it was but natural for the people to pose questions about his identity. Looking from a sensible and logical point of view, there isn’t much that can be found about his life and lifestyle. Many scholars believe that Shakespeare was born in Stratford, London and died in 1616. This man was a small time actor who did a lot of theater and could never afford to get proper university education. Now when the so called literary works of Shakespeare are read, one can easily find that there is a lot of disconnect between the actual life of the author and the life being portrayed in the writings. One can easily figure out that the author of these writings had a keen grasp of literature, language, court life, travel and royalty. But the Stratford born Shakespeare did not have the skill or knowledge to have produced the most amazing literary work in the history of English. Also, there is no solid way to link the writings to Shakespeare. There are many scholars who argue that many of these writings had “Shakespeare” mentioned on many pages which were published during his lifetime and yet there is another group that points out that nobody ever knew if that’s how Shakespeare spelled his name. The plays like Othello, Hamlet and The Tempest have many fundamental facts drawn from Aristocracy and high-end political functioning but the said man, the actor, by no means could have been the part of any aristocracy. There are many such facts that are debatable and thus there is no harm in considering and pondering over the idea that Shakespeare may not have been the flesh and blood person but a figment of imagination.
