A pro Bard-of-Avon entry in the debate over who wrote Shakespeare's works. The author argues against the theory that Bacon wrote the plays, but also disputes the "biography" of Shakespeare which has grown up in the imagination of so many Shakespeare scholars, substituting both genuine facts and a resounding "we do not and will never know." Contents: Memoir of John Semple Smart by W. MacNeile Dixon; Stratford-on-Avon; Family history; Things which never were; Strange conspiracy; Scholarship; Fragments.
