Subject:        Authorship of Edward III

Of interest to those interested in authorship of disputed plays and
computer-assisted authorship:

 The following story appeared in The Globe Online:
 Headline: Much ado about data
 Date:     8/5/2003
 Byline:

"For years, Shakespeare scholars have debated whether a strange
16th-century play known as "Edward III" actually was written by the bard
of Avon himself. Some see Shakespeare's brilliant wit in the scene where
a clown helps the anxious king compose a love letter. And a few suggest
the entire work is genuine Shakespeare, produced early in his career,
and deserves a place in the canon."
