Why Amelia's Authorship matters

Agreed, John Hudson does not make his case for Amelia Bassano having written the works attributed to William Shakespeare.  (Whom he coyly refers to as "Mr. Shakespeare".)  I found quite a bit of speculation in his book disguised with "could haves" and "it seems".  Amelia might have gone to Denmark when she was at court. She might have gone to Italy afterward with her relatives. But did she?

Sadly, documentation just isn't there.  For any of the candidates.  This blog will not deal with judging the fascinating and excellent research being done in the field, but just how I feel about the plays, with the idea that they were written by a woman.
