The Case for Sir Thomas North as Shakespeare


On May 8th, 2021 we had a wonderful Authorship Roundtable Zoom Talk given by Michael Blanding and Dennis McCarthy. The talk is separated into two videos which will play simultaneously below.

The newly discovered Elizabethan manuscript: “A Brief Discourse of Rebellion and Rebels” by George North (Thomas’s likely cousin) is shown to contain nearly identical source material of 11 Shakespeare plays. The reprint of the manuscript with analysis is available on Amazon and is written by Dennis McCarthy and June Schlueter.

Michael Blanding, an investigative journalist who wrote a New York Times article about Dennis McCarthy’s work with plagiarism software in 2018, added his own research on Thomas North. His new book, “North by Shakespeare” was featured in Smithsonian Magazine in April.

Please watch the video below and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more thought-provoking talks on the Shakespeare Authorship Debate.
