Applying computer generated "writeprints" to other authors, the influence of the Bard of Avon can be measured for each author.

Did writings attributed to Shakespeare have a greater impact (i.e., were they more similar to) writings by Francis Bacon, Edward Devere, or Amelia Lanier?  Were one of these individuals the actual author of writings attributed (incorrectly) to Shakespeare?  What impact did Shakespeare have on other authors (i.e., how similar are writings attributed to Shakespeare to writings by other authors)?
