The authorship of Shakespeare's plays has long been in dispute and heated up the printing presses in the past just as this mystery does today. Here are over 50 books on this interesting topic:

Delia Bacon- a Biographical Sketch by Theodore Bacon
Delia Bacon was best known for her work on Shakespearean authorship.
Bacon intended to prove that the plays attributed to William Shakespeare were written by a coterie of men, including Francis Bacon, Sir Walter Raleigh and Edmund Spenser, for the purpose of inculcating a philosophic system, for which they felt that they themselves could not afford to assume the responsibility. This system she set out to discover beneath the superficial text of the plays.

The Family Shakespeare by Thomas Bowdler 1847
To bowdlerize means to self-righteously remove or modify passages one considers vulgar or objectionable. A medical doctor by the name of Thomas Bowdler, whose birthday was this day in 1754, gave new meaning to expurgation.
Dr. Bowdler gave up his medical practice to practice surgery on the works of William Shakespeare. He removed all those words “...which cannot with propriety be read aloud in a family” or which are “...unfit to be read aloud by a gentleman to a company of ladies.” He removed all the words and expressions which he considered to be indecent or impious from Shakespeare’s writings.
