Twenty years of reading about this have convinced me that the author wasn't the Stratford man and was probably De Vere (Oxford).

My father introduced me to the authorship question many years ago, and ever since I've been fascinated with the issue. I think Edward De Vere wrote the plays.

Ms. Ana Traversa, M.A.

A collaborative hypothesis is both intellectually and historically more satisfying than any single-author hypothesis. It also places the text above authorship.
