Some people question whether Shakespeare really wrote the works that bear his name – or whether he even existed at all.

Natalya St. Clair and Aaron Williams show how a linguistic tool called stylometry might shed light on the answer.

Lesson by Natalya St. Clair and Aaron Williams, animation by Pink Kong Studios.
