…Oh anonymous, how much curiosity you cause. You and your half-friend, pseudonym shadow the walls of history. Who was who? Must know who deep throat is!

You know there”s even a dictionary for you anon and pseudonomyni?

But what’s in a name?

WIki book on William Shakespeare.

The wiki entries for Sh are well balanced and informative on all fronts. It doesn’t deny the Oxfordians, or other authorship theories their wiki page or place.

It does contradict their stating that we have no evidence about Shakespeare.

No alias necessary. The Stratford guy fits the bill. Har har!

I only need him to have been the one referred to in connection with dealings in the theatrical, writing, and printing business. And such is the evidence we have.

They tell us that Sh not our Sh was a genius afraid to soil his name with the stage.

Since plays required a theatre company and shareholders and a market for the viewing, hearing and buying the words.

And since plays automatically became the property of the theatrical company who paid for them, we must look to his poems.

Poems were a different discipline than plays. More refined, more up-market. Billy from Stratford knew that desire. His dad was all that and the son too showed the same life long commitment to self-betterment. Whether in his life or his art.

His long story quasi-erotic poems are about the closest thing we have to Shakespeare the author in direct influence of the dissemination of his own words.

Both of them are prefaced by a letter to his patron. So much for the no letters from Sh argument.


I know not how I shall offend in dedicating my unpolished lines to your lordship, nor how the world will censure me for choosing so strong a prop to support so weak a burden: only, if your honour seem but pleased, I account myself highly praised, and vow to take advantage of all idle hours, till I have honoured you with some graver labour.

But if the first heir of my invention prove deformed, I shall be sorry it had so noble a god-father, and never after ear so barren a land, for fear it yield me still so bad a harvest.

I leave it to your honourable survey, and your honour to your heart’s content; which I wish may always answer your own wish and the world’s hopeful expectation.

Your honour’s in all duty,

And that of the Rape of Lucrece:


THE love I dedicate to your Lordship is without end; whereof this pamphlet, without beginning, is but a superfluous moiety.

The warrant I have of your honourable disposition, not the worth of my untutored lines, makes it assured of acceptance.

What I have done is yours; what I have to do is yours; being part in all I have, devoted yours.

Were my worth greater, my duty would show greater; meantime, as it is, it is bound to your Lordship, to whom I wish long life, still lengthened with all happiness.

Your Lordship’s in all duty,

But then again all evidence termed orthodox is suspect, and continually denied by Oxfordians, before you even begin to argue, so what”s the point?

After all they started somewhere and this is what we”ve got. Ergo they swallowed it and then choked on its inconsistencies. But how can you simply deny evidence and get away with it?

It sucks because the historical record is hard enough to establish on almost every point of Sh’s biography from birth date to death date. You almost want someone to topple him from his throne. So far no one has without using specious and unfulfilling argument.

Deny the poet and you deny the world. Deny Falstaff and you deny Will. Yet he is denied.

Henry V H5 II.chorus.27
Confirmed conspiracy with fearful France;
Julius Caesar JC II.i.77
They are the faction. O conspiracy, Sham’st thou to show thy dangerous brow by night, When evils are most free?

Julius Caesar JC II.i.81
O then, by day Where wilt thou find a cavern dark enough To mask thy monstrous visage? Seek none, conspiracy; Hide it in smiles and affability:

Julius Caesar JC II.iii.7
There is

JC II.iii.5
but one mind in all these men, and it is bent against Caesar. If thou beest not immortal, look about you: security gives way to conspiracy. The mighty gods defend thee!

King Edward III E3 I.i.107
Bear’st thou a part in this conspiracy?
(He draws his sword)

King Lear KL I.ii.55
Hum! conspiracy! ‘ Sleep till I waked him,

Richard II R2 V.ii.96
Thou fond, mad woman,
Wilt thou conceal this dark conspiracy?

Richard II R2 V.iii.58
O, heinous, strong, and bold conspiracy!

The Merry Wives of Windsor MW IV.ii.112
O you panderly rascals! There’s a knot, a ging, a pack, a conspiracy against me. Now shall the devil be shamed.

The Tempest Tem II.i.306
While you here do snoring lie,
Open-eyed conspiracy
His time doth take.
If of life you keep a care,
Shake off slumber, and beware.
Awake, awake!

Yes. That last.
