(558) Academic attitudes toward the Shakespeare authorship question

Much ado
 about nothing New

An under-appreciated sea-change in academic attitudes 
toward the Shakespeare authorship Question??


The YouTube „Shakespeare Oxford Chanel"
 ( SOF - dedicated to investigating the Shakespeare authorship question and disseminating the evidence that Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford (1550 – 1604), is the true author of the plays and poems published under the pseudonym “William Shakespeare ” )

published a speech of Prof. Don Rubin, York University(Canada) presented at the Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship Conference in Hartford, CT on October 19, 2019, entitled

The new field of Shakespeare. A Critical Look at the Work of Taylor, Leahy, Florio and de Vere
The talk declares that It will look at both this arguably under-appreciated sea-change in academic attitudes toward the whole authorship question and that John  Florio - despite significant francophone support—cannot not be discussed as a Shakespeare candidate

Rubins 1min sketch of his own position (concerning Marlowe,  starting at 23min 05) was shockingly ignorant  and contradictory in that, on the one hand,  …."well argued by Marlovian Ros Barber, a „wonderful story“ …. „it has much to explain themes of exile and the appearance of Italy in so many plays“..." many of his students love to argue for Marlowe this way..". 

...but, on the other hand, ..."trouble believing it, believing  the government would go to such length to protect the life of a supposed political asset at that time, no less cooperate with that person in the secret transportation of a stage play back to England, that was literally all he had to say about the Marlowe theory.

The Marlowe / Shakespeare authorship thesis 
should not be a matter of Believe

(557) The wretched lack of Media imagination: "Shake-speare" was/is a pseudonym of a poet (with multiple pseudonyms)!

The "true" Poet-Genius was, beyond a shadow of a doubt, Christopher Marlowe

4 of the most significant Pseudonyms

George Wither,
 John Taylor.

(556) A barely hidden battle for souvereignity in Shakespeare's authorship issue.

The "Shakespeare Authorship Coalition" (—>SAC with "Oxfordian" CEO 2 —> Shahan) and Keir Cutler continue their fight for a "selective" historical truth.

For reasons of honesty and truthfulness the Coalition should rename itself to...

...the Shakespeare - Oxford Authorship Coalition (SOAC)

Amazingly, Marlowe - without any justification - does not play a significant role in the authorship debate today.

What a pity !

(552) Coriolanus : Autobiografical from the true Shakespeare

Relax for half an Hour !

Listen to an allegorical blueprint of the
„True Shakespeare‘s“ destiny.“

Most scholars date Coriolanus to the period 1605–10, with 1608–09 being considered the most likely,
Texts from 1610 or thereabouts seem to allude to Coriolanus, including Ben Jonson's Epicoene,'s Prize, or the Tamer Tamed.[8]
One line may be inspired by George Chapman's translation of the Iliad (late 1608).[9] References to "the coal of fire upon the ice" (I.i) and to squabbles over ownership of channels of water (III.i) could be inspired by Thomas Dekker's description of the freezing of the Thames in 1607–08 and Hugh Myddleton's project to bring water to London by channels in 1608–09 respectively.[10]
The play was first published in the First Folio 

(551) Barnfield identical to Shakespeare: A PSEUDONYM of Marlowe

THIS VIDEO answers the question:

Why Richard Barnfield 
must have been one of the multiple PSEUDONYMS of Christopher Marlowe?


(550) Autobiographical of the "true" Shakespeare (exemplified on "The Winters Tale")

No rational man can doubt, that in the vast cosmos of Shakespeare's plays compiled for the
first time in the First Folio in 1623 there are  hidden autobiographical contents and
details of the "true" Shakespeare's personal life.

The reason, why virtually no clear autobiografical connections have been found, is related to the fact, that the "true" dramatist of the First Folio plays is not identical to William Shakspere from Stratford, it was: Christopher Marlowe, the only true poet-genius of his time, hiding behind a multiplicity of pseudonyms such as Shakespeare...(...Barnfield, Chapman, Davies and others.

For some Details click this Little Video!
 Autobiographical aspects in Shakesperare's Plays can never be found, unless we are dealing with the life of the "real or true" poet genius and dramatist (C.Marlowe) and not with the false W.Shaksper (from Stratford).

(548) A convincing Sherlock Holmes for the Shakeskespeare problem ?

Michael Dunns Speech related to the Shakespeare Authorship Problem.

What a shame!- When it comes to Marlowe, Michael Dunn loses his righteous reserve and ridicules the „highly educated“ poet with his „brilliant mind“: stating : it leaves us in „Elvis-lives-Category“ with a need of greater proofs. –

He speaks of an „interesting [Marlowe] theory not so far-fetched as it might seem“ but „Marlowe was killed at the age of 29 when many of the Shakespeare plays were not yet written.“ Didn’t he know that no Shakespeare play was written when Marlowe disappeared in 1593?

Dunn  loses himself in the weaknesses of the Oxford Theory (its good parts are in common with that of Marlowe) , since from the beginning he seems to have overlooked the superiority of the Marlowe theory.                          
                                                     Is Michael Dunn really a 
                                                    convincing   Sherlock Holmes?

(547) Willobie his Avisa - An allegory of the Shakespeare authorship issue

Ostensibly the "lovesickness" of  H.W.   left by Avisa is sketched, but subtly  and blatantly 
 the "true" Shakespeare's   [Marlowe's] tragic secrecy and downfall.

"AVISA" de facto stands allegorically for the Shakespeare Authorship question, i.e. for the permanent historical concealment and invisibility of the "true poet - Genius" Shakespeare

(545) Shakespeare, the Oxfrauds and their mental bankruptcy

The Oxfrauds,  a very special British „Task Force“
It' s not enough anymore today (and a sign of mental bankruptcy) to attack the Oxfordians and the Oxford  Shakespeare authorship hypothesis  and declare solemnly,  repetetively and pretty naked  „that 

the man whose name is all over the work and to whom it is attributed by his contemporaries, is the man who wrote it,“  

by hiding , neglecting or denying  the vast amount of irrefutable evidence concerning 

the Marlowe/Shakespeare Authorship Thesis.


(543) The uncanny Shakespeare authorship deception

The  clues  in this Video präsents

  some thoughts that behind the poems of a bizarre "double falsehood" of two poets both named John Davies... 

Christopher Marlowe

  (the only "real and true" poet genius aka Shakespeare) 

is hiding.

(542) A weird "Shakespeare "conspiracy theory" : Shakespeare's Apocrypha ?

The Shakespeare Apocrypha:  a ghostly literary-historical Hoax!

The "Shakespeare Apocrypha" is a group of plays and poems printed during Shakespeare's lifetime ....

- Believe it or not!-

.....with his name on the works... ...but not accepted today as his works (...generally deemed to be the work of other uncertain writers.)

Are we really to believe  that a playwright with
a faked author-name "Shakespeare" wrote these not well known plays ?                                                

Can anybody understand why this weird "Shakespeare "conspiracy theory" has been separated from the Shakespearean Authorship debate ? if that could be handled without reference to one another , i.e. as if it were unrelated!

(541) Michael Wood disqualifies himself shockingly on the issue of Shakespeare's authorship!

Documentary Shakespeare Filmmaker  Michael Wood's  in an interview in Paul Bradshaws "Virals History' " dealt with the authorship of Shakespeare....

..formulating  his opinion on the century old question :

Wood must be seen as the most impressive prototypical Ignorant  discrediting "a real existing Shakespeare Autorship problem", using almost all of the bad dishonest tricks put together in this video!         

MICHAEL WOOD:  (2:13 min) " I am fairly  brusque with the Shakespeare deniers, its  a load of rubbish - to be honest- . There is a couple of things, it raises interesting questions;  The key thing is - you know- that it is about  what historians do and this debate like all other debates in history is something historians decide and its about sources, and historians construct their images of the past by sources and you start with the primary sources that first hand that eywitnesses the documents that close up, you move out to the others depending on what you have got ,  and if you are going to deny that Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare, you deny the primary sources like the Will, 

so it is rubbish ...and nobody of the time thought that and for long after thought that anybody else but Shakespeare wrote Shakspeare,  ( Thats devious! " see B-Wildenthals video- below!)    

 it 's 19th century fantasy, and unfortunately it's a conspiracy theory  - you know- you have got to look to  the recent American election  there is still a lot of people to think the moon landing didn't happen,  but it is as bonkers as that,  behind it lies a kind of ignorance, and the ignorance is about Tudors Society ....So it is nonsense on a total level,..."

Christopher Marlowe ("The true Shakespeare") 

deadly threatened because of high treason and heresy

 had to fake his death  and change identity and Name

 with the help of the crown. 

The video deals with a contemporary  poet and translator "Josuah Sylvester", and why his name  must belong +to  the multiple pseudonyms of the "true" Shakespeare".  (Christopher Marlowe)

(539) Ros Barbers logical fallacies on Shakespeare Authorship Mystery Day.

Is she aware of the problem of "negative circular reasoning"? 

Circular Reasoning

On Nov, 8th 2018  the Second Annual 

Shakespeare Authorship Mystery Day celebration

 took place with  a live stream introduction

 by former Marlowian Ros Barber. 

There she formulated:

Barber: (at min 29:50)   "....shortly after 1594....the name, either the initials W.S. or name Shakespeare started appearing on plays that actually are not his, 
that we know aren't his. 
So there were 7 plays that are part of the Shakespeare Apocrypha which means that they were at one point attributed to Shakespeare,
 we now know for sure they were not written by Shakespeare
 and its very interesting to me that these plays some of which are performed by that company end up beeing published with name or initials of William backs up the broker theory   "

How - on earth - can Ros Barber assert that the "London Prodigal" or "The Yorkshire Tragedy" was not written by Shakespeare... Barber has not even defined if she mean William from Stratford or the concealed "true Shakespeare" who must have used the name "Shakespeare" as a pseudonym or pen-name, ( her own live stream is arguing for.)

I suspect that Barber has not even noticed which  logical error of thinking she accomplished.  Let me explain this with a single example:

 This is classical "negative circular reasoning".

                                                   See 1.)Video on Apocrypha

and 2.)  Video on Logical Fallacies ( Circular Reasoning)

(538) It is not enough today to tackle only half of the Shakespeare authorship question.

Why Keir Cutler never dared to tackle the second part of a dual authorship  problem or question?

part 1.) Why William Shaksper from Stratford was not William Shakespeare, the author of Hamlet ?
part 2.) Who really was behind the pseudonym William Shakespeare?

                                             Keir Cutlers new Video

A plausible Proposal

(537) The fantastic monstrous imaginations of Alexander Waugh

Very  impressive castles in the air ! 

Alexander Waugh is a leading advocate of the Oxfordian theory, the belief that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford wrote the works of William Shakespeare. He is a life member of the De Vere Society, [4] and serves as the Honorary President of the Shakespeare Authorship Coalition.[5]
For quite some time he has been running a YouTube channel where he claims to have found surreptitious allusions embedded in 16th- and 17th-century works revealing that the name "William Shakespeare" was a pseudonym ("I think, this is correct!) , used by Edward de Vere to write the Shakespeare oeuvre.("I think this is incorrect!"!)
Unfortunately he does not allow comments on his Youtube channel  since he doesn't intend ( as he wrote) to spend the rest of his  life replying and arguing with impudent trolls.  Difficult to understand. It wouldn't  be difficult to erase the trolls (within seconds)  and keep the reasonable  letters and arguments.That's managable. Perhaps there are other reasons:  all his articles  ask for  contradiction. Lately he made again an interesting contribution about  the hidden secrets in Francis Meres "Palladis Tamia"1598) a key witness for the Shakespeare authorship debate.

Definition  of Chimera (1621) by the "true" Shake-speare
alias Josuah Sylvester
Is Waugh even remotely  sure who Francis Meres really was.  I wonder what kind of idea he has  of how the brain works.-
Does he  really believe that a single  dubious  but congenial Francis M. put such an obscure highly complex inner construction (a fantasic chimera) on paper  whose strange logic 400 years later a single similar congenial Alexander W. is (accidentally?) able to decipher? Does he really believe that Meres brain  had a mechanism or a deep need to conceal an unidentifiable truth in such a weird way? 

I assume that "Alexander Waugh" would be able to convince us that it is not accidental that in his 15 letter  name  unrecognized hidden meanings are concealed (to name a few -to be found in any anagram generator )

Lately  I reflected on Francis Meres (Blog 505).-A youtube contribution about Drayton. Argument 14 ( at 1h 03 min 20 sec) deals with Francis Meres ! Perhaps it is of some interest for some curious Non-Stratfordian!

                                      Alexander Waughs recent Youtube Contribution
                                                           "Francis Meres knew..."

(536) John Davies : A double falsehood ? [false identities and name - identical to Shak(e)speare?]

Consider that we learn that at Shakespeares times there existed two high level contemporaneous poets who published with...

the same name "John Davies!", in
the same year "1602"  , in
the same City in "London about 
the same literary subjectmatter"(the soul) ,
 2 masterpieces of philosophical literature


at Shakespeares times there existed two high level contemporaneous poets who publieshed with    the same name "John Davies!", in  the same year "1602"  , in  the same City in "London about   the same literary subjectmatter"(the soul) ,  "   2 masterpieces of philosophical literature    "NOSCE TE IPSUM" and "MIRUM IN MODUM"
Consider that in the "Scourge of Follies" (Date of print not secured , >1610) the one John Davies wrote a dedication to the other! How do you interprete this poem?

 in the "Scourge of Follies" (Date of print not secured  >1610)  one John Davies wrote a dedication to the other! How do you interprete this poem?

Also note that from Essay 34 in John Davies "Wittes Pilgrimage"(1605) you get  (specific biograhical) ideas about his poignant life situation

 from Essay 34 in John Davies "Wittes Pilgrimage"(1605) you get  specific biograhical ideas about his poignant life situation
Essai 34 in Wittes Pilgrimage (1605)
                                ("Marlowes life situation")



Doesn't this situation in 1605 fits better to someone else [e.g. Marlowe  who was alive but simultaneously dead] than to an unknown destiny of  a certain John Davies?

Doesn't "John Davies" thus represent a Double Falsehood" , identical to William Shakespeare?

(535) The absolutely amazing "Hero and Leander Triple" in 1598!

No true poets named "George Chapman" and "Henry Petowe"  have existed.

The "Hero & Leander Triple" in 1598
Their names [similar to Shakespeare] were Alias names of the unversal genius Marlowe forced to distribute his biographical and poetical cosmos amongst a multiplicity of (pseudo) authors or author-names.

(For details reflect this video!)

(534) When and Why to abandon Name and Identity?

The true Shakespeare : Christopher Marlowe

Abandoning name and identity,

 as Marlowe has in all likelihood done, and writing under pseudonyms of identifiable persons does not occur as seldom, as is usually assumed, but for very different reasons.... 

...shown here using the example of russian Vladimir Vavilow
  and italian Guilio Caccini

Another example (not shown) could have been taken from Fritz Kreisler
 and Gaetano Pugnani.

Marlowe / Vavilow


(533) Shakefrauds should compete with Oxfrauds

Shakefrauds ! An abyss of academic inability  of reasoning in humanities


Without accepting a historical Marlowe/Shakespeare authorship fraud there will be no way to explain and interprete the weird situation of plays explicitly printed as written by Shakespeare during his lifetime, but not included in the "First Folio! 1623
                                            What a bizarre and grotesque Situation!!
                   Ultra-orthodox  Stratfordian Shakespeare scolars ( e.g. Oxfrauds) 
                       should start to be more interested in good conspiracy theories!

The London Prodigal (1605)",  "A Yorkshire Tragedy (1608)" and Pericles (1609)"

Stunningly these plays were omitted in the First Folio , and amazingly "Pericles" alone      later was accepted to be included in the Shakespeare  Canon!                         

     For more details click this VIDEO!  


(532) The "true" Shakespeare alone wrote the "Passionate Pilgrime"! But who was he?

 The "Passionate Pilgrime" has been written by a single author, the true poet and dramatist genius Marlowe alias William Shake-speare,   alias  Griffin, alias Barnfield,  alias Deloney,  alias Heywood)

                                                 .... as inconceivable it may sound !

There are serious  reasons to argue that in 1599  the "Passionate Pilgrime" has been written by a single author, the true poet and dramatist genius Christopher Marlowe who signed under one of his various  pseudonyms: W.Shakespeare.

There was no need for Marlowe to reveal the contributions of others of his pennames used previously. Some brief reflections on  those poems of allegedly other  poets (Griffin, Barnfield, Deloney, Heywood)  disclose a common contextual autobiographical background of the poems as well as the reason why “Shakespeare Academe”  for lack of acceptance of a historical authorship problem is not yet ready even to begin  to resolve the excess of Shakespeare inconsistencies.

(531) William Shakspeare (Stratford) equals obscure James Shirley

James Shirley belongs to the late pennames of the true literary english genius .


Act V (a subplot) within the stage play "The wittie faire one" by James Shirley discloses in a round about way the Shakespeare / Marlowe authorship issue, indicating that Shirley belongs to the later pennames of the true genius.

                                                        (for details click video!)

(530) Stratfordians about the Non-Stratfordians: They are just crazy

The Shakespeare-Stratford-Dogma (SSD) is not allowed being questioned or doubted and it cannot be changed or discarded without affecting the very system's paradigm.


...challenging the dogma is academic death and the most elegant way for a scholar to commit career suicide” !
Almost any scholar would lose his job, his position or reputation in the academic world of "Shakespeare orthodoxy" if he would would engage in the least to the authorship debate and doubt.!
One wonders how such a infinite unique global confusion could occur ?

There are significant reasons for this confusion, which can only ever be resolved
with the gradual acceptance of the complex Marlowe Shakespeare authorship thesis.
