The True “Shakespeare” Gets His Own Bust

New events keep unfolding in this Big Year for Edward de Vere!  Here’s the new bronze bust to replace the traditional image, you know, the Engraving in the First Folio and/or the Bust in the Stratford church.

 

The New Bust of Edward de Vere, who was "Shakespeare"

 

It was commissioned by a fellow named Ben August of Houston, a Shakespeare-lover who learned about the Authorship Question and the theory that the Earl of Oxford, at age forty-three in 1593, adopted the pen name “William Shakespeare.”  There’s an interesting interview with Ben August by Mark Anderson on his blog for Shakespeare by Another Name.

And there’s lots more going on from Mr. August as you can see here.

 

This is just one indication of what’s happening in the world of the Shakespeare Authorship Question.  Hang on for the ride!
