"In 1601 Sir Henry Neville was imprisoned and "Shakespeare" stopped writing history plays. This book reveals evidence of Neville's authorship, with examples of annotation found in books from Neville's library suggesting they were material for the plays. Anomalies indicate Shakespeare's bias in portraying the Nevilles in a positive light, revealing the hidden author's political viewpoint and true identity."
