TANG CERAMICS: Pottery figures, animals and vessels from Subterranean authorship of ENQUIRER WIRE SERVICES To be the genius of Western literature or not to be? That is the question. To most scholars, William Shakespeare is one of the greatest writers in the English language. But to some persistent skeptics, he was an ill-educated bumpkin acting as a shill for a true literary genius. "There's a lot of people in the world with a lot of time on their hands who have to do something," said Robert Fehrenbach, a professor of English at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va., talking about the skeptics. Three people from New Mexico admitted digging a hole on the grounds of historic Bruton Parish church in Williamsburg last week in a vain effort to find evidence they said would prove that Francis Bacon wrote the plays. "Good luck," said Ward Elliott, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College near Los Angeles. Elliott was a member of a team that did a computer analysis of Shakespeare's works and concluded that it was unlikely that Bacon wrote them. The Bruton Parish connection goes back to 1938, when Marie Bauer Hall of California, leader of the Veritat Society, dug on the ,1 riiiuocii I.

The exhibition opening is 6-9 p.m. rnday. scholars debate Shakespeare grounds of the church in search of a vault the group said held docu ments proving that Bacon and group of more than 30 others wrote the plays. Hall said she was guided in her search by a code contained in the works of Bacon. Mysterious life Fehrenbach said Shakespeare's life remained mysterious, which led to the beliefs that Shakespeare didn t write the plays. Most scholars believe Shake speare wrote the plays, he said Much of the evidence skeptics put forward is circumstantial, he said, for example, that the playwright had no more than a grammar school education. "It puzzles a lot of people that the guy never went to the university," Fehrenbach said. Many of his manuscripts have never been found, and, at the height of his career as a playwright, he stopped. "He was a good businessman," Fehrenbach said. "He quit, went home, bought the biggest house in town and raised sheep. That doesn't sound like someone interested in high art." Those who believe that Shakespeare wrote the plays are called Stratfordians and supporters of Bacon, Baconians.
