In 2009 I published The De Vere Code, which demonstrates that the poems published as Shake-speare's Sonnets in 1609 were in written, not by William Shaksper from Stratford-on-Avon, but by Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, a nobleman at the court of Queen Elizabeth I.

As the promotional bandwagon for Roland Emmerich's Stratford-baiting Anonymous gets under way, this blog will chronicle the next few months in the life of The De Vere Code, to see how its arguments, and the wider case for Edward de Vere, fare during this time of unprecedented scrutiny around all things Authorship…

Get thee to a Nunnery

Mark Rylance and Sir Trev Nunn toe-to-toe in Saturday's Guardian, So Who Did Write Shakespeare? Rylance puts Francis Bacon, de Vere, and Mary Sidney at or near the scene of the crime, and it seems likely that IF there was something going on around 'Shakespeare' it involved a group of interested parties, each involved for different reasons. Many blows are traded, but interestingly no knock-out punch from Trev. If it  really is so obvious that anti-Stratfordians are daft - why doesn't he, of all people have it up his sleeve? The post list following the article demonstrates the extremes of feeling the subject provokes. Even those who are indifferent are really angry about just how indifferent they are.
