I am curious, do SHAKSPERians agree with the endorsement of Thomas of
Woodstock as a Part One of Richard II, and authorship by Shakespeare?
This seemed to present it as fact.

I look forward to reading the downloaded piece. I read Woodstock a few
years back, along with the newly-penned conclusion that the Hampshire
Shakespeare Festival solicited by contest.
I was surprised to hear a scholar pronounce this play's status as an
established fact. As a member of the laity, I hadn't run across this.
I was sure someone else would ring in, but, I haven't seen any follow-up
so far. How do others respond to "Woodstock" as brother to "Richard II"?
