New Shakespeare collection to include "Apocrypha"

Have you heard of Shakespeare's Mucedorus? Neither have most people, since the late 16th century play has been attributed to someone else. But now, thanks to linguistic "fingerprinting," Shakespeare's involvement in the writing of the play may have been proven.

Mucedorus, along with Arden of Faversham and The Spanish Tragedy, is part of the "Shakespeare Apocrypha," plays showing possible connection to the Bard. The computer analysis was enough to convince Shakespearean scholar Jonathan Bate to include the three plays in a new collection co-edited by the Royal Shakespeare Company and Palgrave Macmillan.
