Google Search: Weir Bacon poet group:humanities.lit.authors.*: "Was Bacon capable of writing with 'drama and intensity?'"
Today I put my foot back in the water (if not in my mouth) at HLAS, with a post to Elizabeth Weir, the industrious Baconian, who must have thousands of posts to HLAS by now. In the past, I've chided her for ducking my questions re: Francis Bacon and ignoring evidence for Marlowe. In my latest post, I ask her to offer any facts she has that Bacon was a poet. If she's already posted it, she may be put off by my laziness, so I should look for evidence myself.

M.B. Malyutov has written Fusion of Various Methods for Resolving the Shakespeare Controversy. Documentary and literary evidence on the authorship attribution of works traditionally ascribed to Shakespeare is complemented by several micro-style, macro-style tests and a study of the validity of anagrams deciphered in the Shakespearean canon.

Roberta Ballantine calls it "the first truly scholarly treatment of different viable approaches to the problem--a study worth wide distribution." Also available as PDF file
