Law and Evidence Meet Literature: The Brooklyn Rail's William S. Niederkorn Goes Beyond the Previously Known Bard in the Review of the Late Attorney Richard Paul Roe's Shakespeare Guide to Italy

Law treats evidence differently than literature and a host of other disciplines.

The true identity of Shakespeare is one such evidence-based literary question, as we already discussed previously at LawPundit at Legal Graphologists : A Query to You : What About the Christopher Marlowe - William Shakespeare - Controversy and The Signatures of These Two Authors? Are They By the Same Hand?

The late attorney Richard Paul "Dick" Roe was a retired California lawyer who spent the last 25 years of his life becoming an expert on Shakespeare, but not just in the traditional "literary" sense.

He personally traveled throughout Italy to find the locations of and information about geographic places and persons in Shakespeare's plays.

This resulted in a fantastic book, The Shakespeare Guide to Italy: Retracing the Bard's Unknown Travel, which provides a geographical factual basis for Shakespeare's plays.

I am reading this book now.

New study, same authors: patent trolls cost economy $29 billion yearly.

That is more than 10% of the amount spent on research and development in the USA.
