Shakespeare in…Poets’ Corner?

 

In a piece for The Guardian titled “I can prove that ‘William Shakespeare’ is buried in Westminster Abbey – scholar,” grandson of the great Evelyn Waugh (NOTE: refer to wickedly funny moment in Lost in Translation for cultural reference) Alexander Waugh claims that “William Shakespeare was in fact Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, and is buried in Westminster Abbey, not the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon.”

Now, I’m no scholarly sleuth, but after reading this article all I can think is: Has someone read a bit too much Dan Brown for their own good?
