Subject: Stylometrics Idea
Take all the plays by Shakespeare considered to be appreciably
influenced by Holinshed. Treat the others accepted as entirely his as
core Shakespeare and do what Ward Elliott and his associate did with
their 32 core Shakespeare plays. Then treat the Holinshed-influenced
plays as unknowns and see how they compare to the other plays. Would
they show that Holinshed wrote them?
