Shakespeare Cartoon in New Yorker

We haven't addressed the whole "who wrote Shakespeare?" debate here because, quite frankly, the anti-Stratfordian line of argument just pisses me off. But, the current issue of the New Yorker has a clever little cartoon about the debate, and it's worth checking out. (I can't post it here for copyright reasons.) Aren't those New Yorker cartoons fantastic?

  1. I've always viewed the debate as "classist" in that from what I've read the proposed "real" authors are always folks with Oxbridge educations and.or some place in the court if not "of noble birth."
