Kurt Kreiler's Der Mann . . . now in English translation

Kurt Kreiler made quite a splash in the German press two years ago when his biography of the seventeenth earl of Oxford, Edward de Vere, was published as Der Mann der Shakespeare erfand (The Man who Invented Shakespeare). The Shakespeare Oxford Society News page online reported on the coverage including some translations of German reviews. (See list of links at the end of this article.) Kreiler's book is now available in English translation under the title Anonymous Shake-Speare Earl of Oxford: the Man Behind. This English translation of Kreiler's book is available in ebook format from Amazon and other outlets for $9.99. 

Richard Malim of the De Vere Society reported on Nina Green's Phaeton email list that Kreiler would be on hand along with Roland Emmerich and a German academic to discuss Emmerich's film about the Shakespeare authorship, Anonymous, when it is screened on October 14, 2011 at the Frankfurt Book Fair. More information about his book is available on Kreiler's English language web page at
