Searching algorithms and other linguistic tools have developed so much that we can now know who really wrote which texts. If the authorship of one text is known and accurate we can find out who penned different books, a feat that used to take years to achieve and only by experts.

Find out that Cranford was written by Charles Dickens and that no Elizabeth Gaskell existed. Or discover if Shakespeare wrote his poems or was it someone else with the same name.

As long as the literature exists or can be scanned in, the website compares it with millions of other texts and gives you a definite conclusion based on statistics and clear evidence. A paid version would be useful for scholars dealing with old or ancient texts.
