And is it ever monumental.
The other works on the Oxford authorship are all excellent and enjoyable in their own rights, but this work takes the case for de Vere to a completely new level. I am continually amazed (and delighted) at the insight and scholarship demonstrated in this most extraordinary analysis of "Shake-speare's" Sonnets.
Fifty years from now they will be building university courses around this work.
Don't hesitate. Just get it. You will be enjoying this book for the rest of your life.
I count this volume as one of the greatest treasures of my library.
Even if you are not an Oxfordian, but simply a lover of Shakespeare or the sonnets, The Monument is worth your time. Forget the format overlay, and read the sonnets and the explication -- a great deal is there to be learned about how Shakespeare used language, and where it came from.
This book, however, is quite wonderful in that it is the work of a man of passion, a man of huge intelligence, a man with an original mind. I love the book, not for what it tells me about Shakespeare, but for what it shews me about Hank Whittemore. He does not come across as dogmatic, but as delightful. That he has studied the Works intensely, and thought deeply about them, is obvious on every page. How can one not love a man who so loves Shakespeare's Works? I can highly recommend this huge strange book. One does not have to believe the Oxford theory to drink to the full the experience of one man's almost daemonic passion.
