Landmark events in human exploration and scientific discovery can often capture the human imagination to such a degree that certain aspects become enveloped in a cloud of mystery from which bizarre interpretations eventually emerge. The first human steps on the Moon undoubtedly became the story of the century, though some Apollo 11 myths question whether they were fact or fiction. RufusCi via Wikipedia Since the Apollo 11 spacemen re-entered society after their lunar voyage, the quieter aftermath seems to have provided a fertile pool for the spawning of many myths concerning the space mission, ranging from the farcical to the speculatively ingenious.

The absence of documentary proof of Shakespeare's education is often a part of anti-Stratfordian arguments. The free King's New School in Stratford, establishedwas about 0.
This lack of documentation is taken by many anti-Stratfordians as evidence that Shakespeare had little or no education. The author's vocabulary is calculated to be between 17, and 29, words. The appearance of Shakespeare's six surviving authenticated  signatures, which they characterise as "an illiterate scrawl", is interpreted as indicating that he was illiterate or barely literate.
Spelling of Shakespeare's name Shakespeare's name was hyphenated on the cover of the quarto edition of the Sonnets. In his surviving signatures William Shakespeare did not spell his name as it appears on most Shakespeare title pages.
His surname was spelled inconsistently in both literary and non-literary documents, with the most variation observed in those that were written by hand. This hyphen use is construed to indicate a pseudonym by most anti-Stratfordians,  who argue that fictional descriptive names such as "Master Shoe-tie" and "Sir Luckless Woo-all" were often hyphenated in plays, and pseudonyms such as "Tom Tell-truth" were also sometimes hyphenated.
Aristocrats such as Derby and Oxford supposedly used pseudonyms because of a prevailing " stigma of print ", a social convention that putatively restricted their literary works to private and courtly audiences—as opposed to commercial endeavours—at the risk of social disgrace if violated.
Bacon to avoid the consequences of advocating a more republican form of government and Marlowe to avoid imprisonment or worse after faking his death and fleeing the country.
Anti-Stratfordians say that nothing in the documentary record explicitly identifies Shakespeare as a writer;  that the evidence instead supports a career as a businessman and real-estate investor; that any prominence he might have had in the London theatrical world aside from his role as a front for the true author was because of his money-lending, trading in theatrical properties, acting, and being a shareholder.
They also believe that any evidence of a literary career was falsified as part of the effort to shield the true author's identity. They identify him with such characters as the literary thief Poet-Ape in Ben Jonson 's poem of the same name and the foolish poetry-lover Gullio in the university play The Return from Parnassus performed c.
Such characters are taken as broad hints indicating that the London theatrical world knew Shakespeare was a front for an anonymous author.
Similarly, praises of "Shakespeare" the writer, such as those found in the First Folioare explained as references to the real author's pen-name, not the man from Stratford. The language of the will is mundane and unpoetic and makes no mention of personal papers, books, poems, or the 18 plays that remained unpublished at the time of his death.
Its only theatrical reference—monetary gifts to fellow actors to buy mourning rings —was interlined after the will had been written, casting suspicion on the authenticity of the bequests. Oxford had died infive years earlier. The earliest printed image of the figure, in Sir William Dugdale 's Antiquities of Warwickshirediffers greatly from its present appearance.
Some authorship theorists argue that the figure originally portrayed a man clutching a sack of grain or wool that was later altered to help conceal the identity of the true author.

He became an actor and shareholder in the Lord Chamberlain's Men later the King's Menthe playing company that owned the Globe Theatrethe Blackfriars Theatreand exclusive rights to produce Shakespeare's plays from to While information about some aspects of Shakespeare's life is sketchy, this is true of many other playwrights of the time.
Of some, next to nothing is known. Others, such as Jonson, Marlowe, and John Marstonare more fully documented because of their education, close connections with the court, or brushes with the law.
