Subject: Edward III
I heard last night on the BBC World Service radio about evidence(s) that may
finally attribute the authorship of _(The Reign of King) Edward III_ to
Shakespeare. Someone called Prof Eric Sands (???) was involved with the
findings. This is all very new to me and I was half asleep when I heard it. Can
anyone offer some background regarding the play? Are there any existing
evidence supporting such an attribution, and would such evidence be purely
statistical? And given the current interest in the F.E. (and what little I know
about the analytical methods surrounding it), I'm curious as to what SHAXICON
*might* reveal about _Edward III_. Anyone?
