Is Shakespeare the actual writer?Controversial theme about Shakespeare

An interesting topic some experts argue about is, "Did Shakespeare really write all the poems known to be his?" Some claim that Shakespeare wasn't the real writer of some of his plays, but more likely a fraud. On the other hand, others say that Shakespeare did write every single one of the plays.

One professional insisted that Shakespeare belonged to the middle class, a poor environment for a writer. Another argued that he was funded and Shakespeare received enough financial support as an artist. She assumed that a playwriter talented like Shakespeare would have had at least one supporter to manage his humble life as a playwriter. Also, she added the fact that playwriters don't need a lot of money.

The second thing the specialist said was about the rare appearance of Shakespeare's name in the early published versions of the plays. However, the opponent insisted that many plays get published without getting authorization. So, they did not include the author's name when presenting plays. It included the meaning of publicity, and larger group of audience.

Finally, the expert argued there was no obituary after his death. Casting doubt on Shakespeare's works, he thought this wasn't the appropriate case for someone so famous. But, the counterpart said, at that time, ways of showing respect varied. They could show respect to him not only by obituary, but writing poems and writings for Shakespeare. That was what the fellow writers did when Shakespeare died: they wrote writings and poems for him. So, no obituaries didn't mean Shakespeare wasn't a famous talented playwriter.
