Author Biography

In the last seven months of the last world war Francis Carr took part in the Italian campaign as a platoon commander. In 1945,as he had to wait for nine months for the academic year to begin, he became a public speaker for the Conservative Party and a private secretary to the MP for Rutland, Lord Willoughby. After taking the Academic Diploma course at the School of Slavonic Studies at London University, he worked as a copywriter at one of the largest magazine publishers in London. He then became the director of Residence Recitals, presenting Cultural events at houses of historic importance. Many well-known actors and musicians took part. For seven year Carr edited the monthly history magazine, past and future. In each issue there was an article on future trends in a wide variety of subjects, such as population, war, medicine, women, architecture, and morality. Since 1972 Carr has written books which challenge the establishment in art history, Russian history and musicology. His new book contradicts the English and the Spanish Literary establishments, rejecting the claims of Shakespeare as the playwright and Cervantes as the author of Don Quixote. His books have been translated into German, Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch and Japanese. His books refute outdated teaching. His biography of Mozart is the only book which gives a full account of the composer's death and burial, demolishing the claim that he died of natural causes. Carr's biography of Ivan the Terrible gives, for the first time, a full account of this tyrant's savagery, unlike previous works which minimize Ivan's barbarity. In his Hstory Of Erotic Art, Carr has singled out the Christian Church as the most harmful agent in the development of the erotic. For years he has directed the Shakespeare Authorship Information Centre, for more details see
