"...the sort of cranks who maintain that as Shakespeare had little
Latin and less Greek, and did not keep company with kings, he could
never have written so brilliantly of kings and courts, and so not he
but some great lord had written the plays in his name."

—Gore Vidal

(Vintage Books/Library of America 1992), page xxii.

_November Boughs_ (1888) Walt Whitman

<<Conceiv'd out of the fullest heat and pulse of European feudalism -personifying ill unparalleled ways the medieval aristocracy, its towering spirit of ruthless and gigantic caste, with its own peculiar air and arrogance (no mere imitation) -only one of the "wolfish earls" so plenteous in the plays themselves, or some born descendant and knower, might seem to be the true author of those amazing works -works in some respects greater than anything else ill recorded literature.>>
