Shaking a Spear at Ignorance: Shakespeare was the Tudor Princes Francis Bacon and Edward de Vere
Page Numbers : 577-656
DOI : 10.36348/sjhss.2020.v05i10.009
This paper is the first to link both Tudor princes, changeling children and illegitimate sons of Queen Elizabeth I, Edward de Vere and Francis Bacon, to the Shakespeare plays. The author is also the first to discover a dramatic likeness in the countenance featured in the portraits of Edward de Vere and Shakespeare, which he shares in this paper. In addition, he found a dramatic likeness in the handwriting of four pages of original manuscript material from The Book of Thomas More and that of Francis Bacon, the editor and co-author of the Shakespeare works. In addition, this paper shares the discovery that there are four different spellings of the name William Shakespeare appearing on the title pages of the complete works, which suggests that there is a total of four different hands at work in the authoring of the plays. In addition, the 1623 Folio lists the authors name in all block capitals suggesting that the brand name is being used in the case of the collected works because a team is involved and not just a single author.

A dynamic reviewer of conservative morality has generally been viewed that moral judgments express individual desires or accepted habits. It is indeed that complete human beings participate fully in the life of society and express all of their nature. Some impulses must be checked in the interests of society and others in the interest of individual development, but it is a person's relatively unrestricted natural growth and self-realization that makes for the good life and harmonious society. Thus, the present research endeavor was aimed at studying morality among undergraduate students belonging to forward and backward classes with special reference to Mithila region of North Bihar. In this study one hundred sixty (N=160) undergraduates were selected randomly from different constituent colleges of L. N. Mithila University, India. Data were collected through questionnaire schedule. Having collected the data, individual scores were obtained as per norms of the test for giving statistical treatment. Obtained results revealed the clear cut picture regarding the significance of difference in terms of their perceived morality between the group of forward and backward undergraduates studying in different colleges of L. N. Mithila University as their t – value had been found significant statistically at .01 level of confidence. Moreover, no significant difference between the group of male and female undergraduates has been found within the group of forward and backward classes especially in Mithila region, although forward group of male and female undergraduates had shown higher degree of perceived morality as compared to backward class group. The present trends of results have been discussed in detail by highlighting the probable reasons prevailing in Mithila region.

Recent developments and researches have proved that old or traditional management models as typical hierarchical organizational structure, autocracy, tight control, close supervision, etc are not effective and would not fit the current organizational conditions especially to school organizations. Many Indian government schools find themselves unable to compete in retaining talent globally when compared to missionary school employees working in India due to their high level of work motivation. Therefore, the present study was aimed at studying the employees’ work motivation during COVID – 19 pandemic among teaching and non – teaching employees working in Government and Missionary Schools with particular reference to North Bihar. To measure the differences between Government and Missionaries Schools employees in terms of their levels of work motivation during COVID–19 outbreaks, total sample consisted of one hundred sixty (N=180) which were randomly selected from different Government and Missionaries Schools located at North Bihar, viz., Begusarai, Darbhanga, Madhubani and Samastipur. These are well – known towns of North Bihar. The break up of the total sample comprises Government school teachers (n=45) and Govt. school Non – teacher (n=45) and similarly Missionary School teachers (n=45) and Missionary School Non – teacher (n=45). Total respondents’ age were ranged between 30 to 58 years of age. Having collected the information on the problem through questionnaire schedule, the data were tabulated as per norms of the schedule for giving statistical treatment. Obtained results indicated significant differences in terms of teaching employees’ work motivation between the group of Government School and Missionary school. It is important to mention here that the levels of work motivation among Government school teaching employees have been found little high as compared to missionary school teaching employees but had not shown significant difference during COVID–19 outbreaks. Finally discrepancy of obtained results has been discussed in detail by highlighting the probable reasons.
