Subject:        Double Falshood

On my website (see Shakespeare Apocrypha posting to SHAKSPER) I've been
fairly neutral about Double Falshood possibly being or containing some
of the actual Cardenio.

John W. Kennedy, who created the online text for DF, emailed me to say:

Ever since Stephan Kukowski's 1991 essay, "The Hand of Fletcher in
'Double Falshood'", I believe the weight of scholarly opinion has been
that "Double Falshood" is, indeed, a remnant of "Cardenio".  Theobald
had no reason to forge a Shakespeare-and-Fletcher text, for he always
treated the source of DF as by Shakespeare alone.

Is this the prevailing opinion on DF?  If so, I'll amend my page.

Thanks,
James
