Listmembers have been through this one before, so the archives may
help.  For a succinct summary of the argument for Middleton's
authorship, see the introduction to the Penguin edition of Five Plays of
Middleton. The essays in Three Jacobean Revenge Tragedies (published by
Macmillan, edited by RV Holdsworth) will also be helpful. I'll promise
everyone to say no more about this question.

Cheers,
Jack Heller
