Why is it not possible that the author of the Elegy by W.S. took an old
lost Shakespearean funeral poem and changed a few words here and there
to make it fit its new deceased subject matter? Let us posit that the
poem was 80% by Shakespeare and 20% by the new user. What would the
computer say? Why could not this be the case with the Elegy by W. S.?
