It's amazing the intelletual snobbery that people can have. The arguement goes that William Shakespeare can't possibly have written the plays attributed to him because he came from a humble background. Their contention is of course that people from privileged backgrounds must inherently have more skill with the English Language than those from a poor background (please, can someone explain George Bush, in that case?).
I can't see what the point of this is. Afterall, whoever wrote the plays, they are among the greatest works of art ever created
