Hello to you all

Anyone who read Shakespeare is probably familiar with both names since they are both claimed to be the "true authors" of the plays.
However this is not my real question.
That the man called "William Shakespeare" wrote those plays and poems I have no doubt whatsover. There are enough documentary evidence to support that. What really bugs me is those posh snobs who still don't think that a glover's son from nowhereville up in the center of England could write the finest prose in the English language*.
The real question is how much prevalent are these theories in other languages? Have there been any proven cases? What is your personal take on Shakespeare and the authorship question?
* This last sentence is not my own words, these are the same arguments I read in a critical assessment of the authorship theories a long time ago by an obvious socialist none the less.

I have the same bug, but I'd point out that Shakespeare is a better poet than a prose writer, and that he is anyway the greatest playwright of all time, which takes more than just writing ability or even genius, as Goethe unfortunately demonstrates.
Citizen of Ankh-Morpork.

Never believe anything until it has been officially denied - Sir Humphrey Appleby, 1984.
