The Shakespeare Code?

They're actually serious?
The book will claim that for years a conspiracy of secret codes, missing documents and high political intrigue has hidden the identity of the true “Shakespeare”. The riddle has been solved, say the authors, and the man who should be celebrated as Britain’s greatest writer is not Will, ye olde bard from Stratford.

There is almost no evidence, the authors claim, that the young man who came calling from Avon could wield a pen, let alone write like a midsummer night’s dream. The real hand behind Hamlet, Henry V, The Tempest and all the rest was, they claim, Sir Henry Neville, an educated nobleman far more suited to the role of literary genius.

Mmmmkay. Just to state the obvious - Sir Henry decided to let the illiterate Will claim all the credit over all these years, 'cause . . . . ??????
