Was Frances Bacon the real Shakespeare?

Did Bacon have the access to the regal court, the history and the intrigue, Shakespeare, a poor player, didn't have. Was it a collaboration? Did Bacon allow Shakespeare to take all the credit because he was afraid of consequences, a backlash? Or all of the above?

Delia Salter Bacon, who spent five years, 1853 - 1858 of investigation, failed to prove that Shakespeare's plays were written by Francis Bacon.

@Lustig Andrei,
Besides, who's Frances Bacon? Francis Bacon's sister?

I think Ben Jonson was sweet on her.

@Lustig Andrei,
Bacon? did someone say Bacon? Bacon flavored ice cream sounds good right about now. That's nothing to shake your spear at.

@Ragman,
I can't see Midsummer Nights Dream being written by bacon. It would have really messed up the parchment and got grease everywhere.

Ink was readily available, and much more suited to the task.

@Rickoshay75,
I believe Bacon was an integral part of a group of about 8 authors who needed a patsy (WS) to distribute their, sensitive, material.
I also believe the nature of character's behaviour patterns, within the plays, were a form of behavioural-indoctrination, much as soaps of today.
No point trying to force traits on the public (doesn't work), So you incorporate them into social mediums and BINGO!
Does the soap reflect the ppl, or do they reflect it?

Why dost roll like a stone
Fie Fie Thou complete unknown
Didst bite thy thumb
And call foes dumb
Now thou art mute
Like a cringing brute
Now hang thy head and moan
For thou art a rolling stone

Most of Shakespeare's plays were written by Isaac Jaggard and Edward Blount.

I'm not sure who actually wrote the plays but all the Sonnets were penned by Alan Ginsburg.

@Lustig Andrei,
Right. With a foreword by Henry Miller.

"It may be that we are doomed, that there is no hope for us, any of us, but if that is so then let us set up a last agonizing, bloodcurdling howl, a screech of defiance, a war whoop! Away with lamentation! Away with elegies and dirges! Away with biographies and histories, and libraries and museums! Let the dead eat the dead. Let us living ones dance about the rim of the crater, a last expiring dance. But a dance!"

@Lustig Andrei,
So all my post did for you was bring out your silly side, huh. Well, that's better than no response at all.

@Lustig Andrei,
I was just completing my first answer above, Andy.

I assume it was a quixotic result of nature that you were unleashed upon the world at the same time Cervantes and Shakespeare dropped off the twig.
