Authorship[edit]

Shakespeare publisher "Arden" now claim it was co-written by WS. As this is a breaking story - and will be the default position of the publisher (regardless of their true motives), someone ought to update this article. I would, but then some 16 year old with no clue would remove my edits. Here's the Beeb's story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/8569101.stm —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.177.189.22 (talk) 23:58, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Wilks and Booth[edit]

Is there any connection between the Wilks and Booth who acted in this play, and the Booth family of actors and John Wilkes Booth? Ugajin (talk) 04:29, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

There is no scholarly consensus that Shakespeare wrote any of it[edit]

Some prominent academics have been pressing the claim that it's a rewrite of Shakespeare's play, but the debate has barely begun and I don't see any sign that the majority of scholars have signed off on this idea.128.252.173.23 (talk) 14:22, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Actually the debate's been going on for nearly 300 years. Second, seek the signs that the scholars who have actually investigated this believe it part-shakespearen and you will find them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.66.226.95 (talk) 12:46, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Double FalshoodDouble Falsehood — "Falshood" is an archaic spelling from a time when spelling was not fixed. We use modern spelling for other Shakespeare plays (e.g. we don't have Much Adoe About Nothing), so there's no reason not to use "Falsehood" here.
