[theory that Shakespeare's plays were written by the Earl of Oxford]

Based on my own reading on the subject, I feel I can say this:
I have never seen a convincing argument that Oxford *didn't* write the
plays. On the other hand, no argument that Stratford Willy didn't
write the plays has ever quite convinced me either.
I'm not sure, at this late stage, whether it is actually possible to
know for sure.
