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.

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the will is mundane and unpoetic and makes no mention of personal papers, books, poems, or the 18 plays that remained unpublished at the time of his death.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.
