This is big, I've spent years researching this guy and I'm always crushed that no one will even say his name. This is progress. My interest in him was occasioned by a high school English teacher's remark that Romeo and Juliet was actually written by the Earl of Oxford. That meant nothing to me, but a few years later in college I took a Shakespeare course, and read Richard III and Richard II consecutively, and the latter seemed far inferior to the former, like different writers were present. I started looking into the authorship question, and it was just a hobby, but eventually I started noticing things that the internet said nobody else was saying. I wouldn't have thought I could make a contribution, when I started, but now I think I can.
