Two teams from Ms. Disch's College Prep English class debated today by responding the question: Who authored Shakespeare's plays and sonnets?

One side believes that there is no evidence to suggest that Shakespeare did not author the plays and poems, while the other believes that there is no way a peasant with no education could have authored the works.  Their belief is that the Duke De Vere instead authored the works.

Both sides have evidence, videos, songs and speeches prepared to help make their case.
