Subject: Mark Twain's 'same name' Comment
Can anyone locate a source for the comment attributed to Mark Twain,
that Shakespeare did not write the plays, 'they were written by someone
else of the same name'?
It does NOT appear in the essay, 'Is Shakespeare Dead?' -- and I wonder
if the saying is apocryphal rather than genuine.
