Subject: 5.0875  Authorship
Comment:        RE: SHK 5.0875  Authorship
In re authorship: a funny question occurred to me, after reading the latest
comments on authorship: is there any evidence that Oxford wrote the works of
Kyd, or Marston? The dates are about right, and I would guess that the evidence
linking Oxford to Kyd or Marston would be as *convincing* at the *evidence*
linking Oxford to Shakespeare? Or are the Baconians-Oxfordians-Rutlanders-Uncle
Tom Cobleighers simply trying to link Oxford to an ackowledged genius like
Shakespeare out of unexaminable motives?
