Title

The Comedy of Faire Em

Description

This play was attributed to Shakespeare because it was bound in a volume with two other Elizabethan plays as “Shakespeare, Vol. 1” in the library of Charles II (1630-1685). Modern scholars have investigated all of the plays that were attributed to Shakespeare by anyone in the decades immediately following his death, under the assumption that those attributions could have relied on evidence that is now lost. Researchers have concluded that this play was probably not written by the Bard, though there is no agreement as to who the actual author might be.
