Happy New Year 2012 from “The Monument” and “Shakesepeare’s Son and His Sonnets”

Happy New Year!  Thanks to all readers of this blog and to all who join us in the effort to break down the walls of denial about the true Shakespeare.  We are pleased to report that The Monument: “Shake-speare’s Sonnets” by Edward de Vere 17th Earl of Oxford is entering its eighth year of publication and continues as strongly as ever to communicate with readers in the U.S. and around the world.

And we are especially pleased to be reaching new readers of The Monument on Kindle, which includes the entire book of 900+ pages in its original format.  The same is true for our “overview” or “synopsis” version entitled Shake-Speare’s Son and His Sonnetsa title that indicates, in no uncertain terms, where we stand on the most controversial issue in the Oxfordian community — Prince Tudor!

Here’s a quick response I gave this morning to a reader of this blog who, in the comments section, asked about the Shakespeare Authorship Question as a conspiracy theory.  I told it as I see it:

“The traditional belief that ‘Shakespeare’ was a man from Stratford upon Avon is a powerful myth, which for many makes it difficult if not impossible to look at the facts clearly and without the tremendous pull of prior assumptions. A common attack on those who search for the truth is that they must be “snobs” who feel a commoner could not have written the great poems and plays; but the real snobs are those in academia who continue to ridicule and scoff as well as attack. If there is a conspiracy theory afoot, it’s the conspiracy of powerful entities such as the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and the British tourism industry based on Stratford, along with the world of academia that includes educational institutions, academic credentials, peer-review publishing, teaching tools, textbook companies, the publishing and entertainment worlds — all working together to help each other continue making profits and staying in business. A lot is at stake. Follow the money.

“In the history itself, in my view, the only explanation for an attempt to deceive is that there existed a Prince Tudor — a possible heir by blood to the throne of England in succession to Elizabeth Tudor, the First Elizabeth and legendary Virgin Queen — who, if ‘Shakespeare’ was telling the truth in the Sonnets, was the son of Elizabeth and Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, raised as Henry Wriothesley, third Earl of Southampton, to whom ‘Shakespeare’ dedicated his work and for whom he created the Sonnets as a means of preserving the truth for posterity. It’s all right in front of us, just like so many other things in our lives that are standing in plain sight but go unacknowledged…”

I would add that there’s no other credible explanation for long-term concealment of the true author of the greatest works written in the English language or possibly in any language.  The works attributed to “Shakespeare” — the plays, yes, but especially the poems and sonnets — are the living containers of true history; and if the Earl of Oxford had been revealed as the author, it would not have taken long for the existence of a Prince Tudor — a Tudor heir — to become known and to ignite a new civil war around the throne.  There could have been no higher stakes for those in power and, too, for the stability of a nation.

Once again — Happy New Year to all!

  1. Happy New Year to you, too, Hank! Thank God for you and all that you do for the cause….Your responce above is right on the mark.

    Just finished reading Shakespeare’s Guide to Italy, by Richard Roe…it’s a great one.

    Congrats on the continued success of The Monument.

    • Thanks, Gary! Your continued support is so very much appreciated. Happy New Year to you and yours.

  2. Hi Hank:
    I’ve been on an Oxford binge since the beginning of the year, having read four Oxfordian books. Thought I’d call them to your attention in case you haven’t seen them as yet.

    In addition to “Shakespeare in Italy,” I’ve also read “I Come to Bury Shaksper”, “The Oxford Deception,” and most recently “Four Essays on the Shakespeare Authorship Question,” by Mike A’Dair. I’m putting my new Kindle to good use!

    They were all good, but I especially enjoyed Mike A’Dair’s book. You are mentioned quite prominently thoughout. As I suggested in my Amazon review, I think it’s best described as “the Double Prince Tudor theory – and then some.” Or better: It’s Paul Streitz on steroids!! I think you’ll understand what I mean. Anywhay, thought I’d pass this along to you. Great to see these new Oxfordian books showing up lately.

    Best regards,

    • Thanks, Gary. That’s quite a list. Hope to catch up, too!:-)

    • I’m glad you enjoyed The Oxford Deception! While nothing beats good, solid scholarship, I’ve found that wrapping the truth in a fun thriller is one of the best ways to get the word out in favor of the Earl, and it is a nice counter to some of the fictions which feature the merchant Shakspear. I’d be thrilled if you gave it a nice review on the Amazon website to help drive readers’ interest.
