William Shakespeare, Richard Barnfield, and the Sixth Earl of Derby

by Leo Daugherty


“Daugherty’s work, blending historical fact with imaginative conjecture, shows how research in the Renaissance can be exciting today. His brave readings of primary texts are supported by solid data and tempting arguments. His style is carefully crafted and eminently readable. Scholars will, in the future, look with renewed vigor at both Barnfield and Shakespeare because of Daugherty’s studied conclusions.” — Professor George Klawitter, St. Edward’s University

“Leo Daugherty is the best literary detective I know. His discoveries here will change the ways we think about Shakespeare and his times.” — Professor Steven Shaviro, Wayne State University
