MightyGodKing, in a conversation with himself, on the meaning of Anonymous:
You have summed up the “Shakespeare didn’t write Shakespeare” argument quite neatly. By which, of course, I mean you have demonstrated that it’s really just a bunch of classist garbage spun forth by people who don’t want to admit, for whatever reason, that the greatest writer in the English language was basically just some nobody.
I haven’t seen Emmerich’s latest attempt at cinema and nor do I intend on going out of my way to do so, but MGK perfectly sums up my feelings on the various Anti-Stratfordian arguments: poppycock.
Plus, Shakespeare in Love already had the final word on the secrets of the Bard and it has the Best Picture Academy Award to prove it.
