UGH. I hate it when Shakespeare (the person) shows up in historical fiction novels where he was NOT SUPPOSED TO BE and really has no business being. Like, if he is not going to bring anything to this party, let the man stay home, you know?

Far worse than that, I think, is when novelists make Shakespeare the man speak in Shakespeare quotes. I've read a few mystery novels like that.

That does sound worse: "excuse me while I quote myself; I'm such a genius!"
