And Then There Were None: Winnowing the Shakespeare Claimants


Computers and the Humanities Volume 30, Number 3, ISSN 0010-4817


Applies 51 stylometric computer tests of Shakespeare play authorship and 14 of play authorship, developed by the Shakespeare Clinic, to 37 "true Shakespeares," 27 plays of the Shakespeare Apocrypha, and to several poems of unknown authorship. Finds that no claimant, and none of the apocryphal plays or poems, matched Shakespeare. (DSK)
