“Nothing Truer Than Truth” – A Forthcoming Documentary on Edward de Vere Earl of Oxford –

In a recent blog about “this exciting year” for Edward de Vere Earl of Oxford, the forthcoming documentary Nothing Truer Than Truth from Cheryl Eagan Donovan was inadvertently eliminated while the blog being revised.

Here is a link to a TRAILER of the film.

  1. Thank you very much, indeed…!

    We are surprising people here in Málaga, Spain: http://www.belianis.es

    The trailer of “Anonymous” and this one are a great promo for my forthcoming book. People may think this authorship issue is a trifle, and it is true: It is a tremendous trifle, as Chesterton would say, for the truth lies in the details, so said Nabokov.

    • I love how your site can be translated into any language. Is that available for everyone? Meanwhile it’s great to know you have a forthcoming book. Tell us more if you like. Thanks for the comment.

      • It is available for everyone.
        It will be another chapter, and we’ll stop until the publication.

        I’ll tell you about the book I’m writing.
        Its title is “Ver, begin.”
        The title plays with that sentence from “Love’s Labour’s Lost.”
        It is, firstly, an invocation to my Muse to let the Bard to sing himself his story.
        It is, secondly, a reminder of what Ver is going to sing in that play and is happening to us all: that he sings about all those cuckolds and laughs, as the reader must laugh, because he has been cuckold about the true identity behind Shake-speare.
        Spanish people do not believe all this–yet.

  2. I was not a PT II follower myself: before Beauclerk’s book, I thought “that nonsense” was going to ruin the whole truth. But–

    “Truth is truth for the end of reckoning.”

    So, as a philosopher and lover of truth (and lawyer, sophist) myself, I saw the evidences shown by Beauclerk and vowed to them. I have seen how other oxfordians try to fight against the “crown signature” evidence, or “The Persian Portrait” or “Venus and Adonis” or Hamlet contents (v.g. “Fair queen,” says Adonis, “if any love you owe me, do not try to know me before I know myself,” etc.), and understand them, but “Amicus Plato, sed magis amica veritas,” so said Aristotle.

    Now, I’ll divide the book on chapters dedicated to:

    Preamble.- Philosophical essays on “tradition” and “convention” and what is the “truth” of our opinions.

    Chapter 1.- Venus and Cupid, that is, Elizabeth and Edward de Vere.
    Chapter 2.- Robert Brooke, Arthur Golding and Richard Edwards.
    Chapter 3.- Gascoigne.
    Chapter 4.- Lyly.
    Chapter 5.- Spencer (this is a radical investigation of mine; was he another mask? It seems, by his works, that something is missing in that that lad who lived in the North of Ireland was a friend of Harvey (Immerito) as De Vere in 1579, etc., etc. Spencer’s works “tell” us familiar things, and I am studying his works now in detail.)
    Chapter 6.- Watson.
    Chapter 7.- Greene.
    Chapter 8.- Marlowe (his “Dido” is the object of one essay of mine I shown you).
    Chapter 9.- Daniel.
    Chapter 10.- Shake-speare.

    Read “Colin Clout Come Home Againe”, published in 1595 (to choose just one work), particularly 416 lines forward. Colin is talking about the poets of London (How could the lad in Northen Ireland knows…?) and says:

    And there is a new shepheard late vp sprong,
    The which doth all afore him far surpasse:
    Appearing [disguised?] well in that well tuned song,
    Which late he sung vnto a scornfull lasse [Adonis?].

    An open mind is what we need.

    We all know how the Master sounds when he plays his instrument, no matter how arcaic the disguised is done. Immerito, like Incognito, is, like “The Shepheards Calender” says by E.K. in his first lines:

    VNCOUTHE UNKIST (…), this our new Poete, who for that he is vncouthe (as said Chaucer) is vnkist, and unknown [Ignoto] to most men, is regarded but of few [Immerito, i.e. adverb. unjustly]

    Shake-speare and Spencer are De Vere?
    Am I nuts? Maybe. But–

    • Very good! As for Spenser, yes, in my view definitely a mask. I gave a speech to this effect for an audience of colleagues, most Oxfordians, and while I may not have done a good job the lack of interest was due, I believe, to closed minds on the subject. After all, getting clobbered for “Shakespeare” as a mask is hard enough … but really, the biography of the man in Ireland is about as wanting as that of Will of Stratford. You are right, sir. And right about the Harvey connection — see the Four Letters between Harvey and Immerito in 1580, I believe. They are an elaborate put-on, for the public, and one inference is that Harvey and de Vere worked together — for how long? One of those letters from Immerito contained Harvey’s supposedly mocking poem about Oxford, and Immerito supposedly published it by mistake or whatever. Hmmm. Anyway the letters seen in this light are hilarious. The late Michael Brame of “Shakespeare’s Fingerprints” believed Spenser was a mask of Oxford’s. There is an actual record of Spenser getting fifty pounds a year from the crown in the 1590’s, in quarterly installments, but guess what, he never personally picked it up. Always someone else. Also his funeral in 1599 — what is the documentary record of it?

      • Oh, thank you for the historical detail of the fifty pounds!

        I will quote this detail in full.

        In fact, I put you among the four great oxfordian minds at the ending of my first chapter:

        1.- Thomas Looney, the discoverer. (resume)
        2.- Charlton Ogbourn, the conquerer (resume)
        3.- Hank Whittemore, the decoder of the Sonnets (resume)
        4.- Charles Beauclerk, the decoder of the identity crisis-Acteon.

        Great and thanks you four!
