With "Anonymous" out, the question will rise again. I have three contributions:
1. William Bucke's "Cosmic Consciousness" has a very convincing argument for Francis Bacon's authorship. It is not often cited in scholarship.
2, My professor, a very prominent Shakespeare scholar (Fredson Bowers), pointed out that attaching a historical figure or profile to the name is irrelevant, because Shakespeare was not dramatizing his own life in disguise (the roman-a-clef was not a popular genre in the 16th century);
3. William Saroyan once said "Of course Edward DeVere wrote Shakespeare; everybody wrote Shakespeare, including, luckily, Shakespeare."
