It's a funny thing, because I say it is. Shakespeare passed away before Ben Jonson. At the time Jonson was more considered a major writer. The balance tipped in Shaleseare's favor in a big way during the 19th cnentury. Now the Bard is praised and Jonson is domestic and forgotten. Yet there's that whole authorship question, as silly as it might be. Everyone knoss who Will Shakespeare is, and thousands refuse to believe he wrote anything.
I wonder if there's a lot of teasing that goes on in the afterlife over things like this.
