This study investigates the authorship of A Funerall Elegye, composed by an unidentified "W. S." in memory of William Peter, an Oxford scholar murdered on 25 January 1612. Is it a lost poem of William Shakespeare? Evidence both for and against is presented, along with the text of the 1612 quarto in facsimile, Foster's edited text, and a discussion of attributional theory and methodology. University of Delaware Press Award.
