Since 2002, Richard M. Waugaman, a psychiatrist and a psychoanalyst, has intensively pursued Shakespeare research. Sigmund Freud was the first well-known intellectual to endorse the 1920 theory that "Shake-Speare" was the pen name of Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford. Since Waugaman was disappointed to learn that new evidence strongly supporting Freud's authorship opinion was being widely ignored, he has chosen to specialize in that aspect of Shakespeare studies. His sixty publications on Shakespeare and on the psychology of pen names have appeared in a wide variety of psychoanalytic and English literature journals. In this book, he has collected a sample of his publications, adding a few previously unpublished chapters. Dr. Waugaman has been a clinical psychoanalyst for nearly 40 years. His clinical work has convinced him that both individual and group blind spots can be massive. In the case of the Shakespeare authorship question, he is convinced that mainstream Shakespeare scholars have been excessively certain of their authorship theory, and have thus been engaged unconsciously in circular thinking, rather than evaluating the evidence objectively.
