Discusses the authorship of literary works attributed to William Shakespeare. Describes the “modal analysis” authorship identification test's application to the dispute. Concludes that the poems, “Shall I Die” and “Elegy,” may not have been written by Shakespeare, whereas eight poems from the collection, “The Passionate Pilgrim,” may have been Shakespeare's work.
