I agree that no one will sum up the authorship question or "Shakespeare
and politics" in a few lines. But another useful function of a FAQ is
to point beginners to some of the more interesting extended discussions
of these things: a sort of quickie review of the literature. Of course,
even the most cursory such review of Shakespeare literature would be
huge, but it would certainly be more manageable than trying to _answer_
these questions definitively.
