Albert Einstein :
If at first the idea is not absurd,

The "absurd" idea is that the true and only author of "Hamlet", "King Lear" or "Timon of Athens" was the deadly slandered poet-genius Christopher Marlowe, who - in consultation with the crown - was allowed to save his life by feigning his death, abandoning name and identity and writing henceforth under changing author names (incl.William Shake-speare, George Wither*1 and many others )
*1)Be Aware, that our Poet Genius Marlowe - at his official life time - already traveled incognity under pennames such as George Wither (Reims 1585) or Geoffrey Whitney (Leyden 1585/86)
