A great review of the essence of Looney's work takes up half a chapter, and is a terrific condensation of that 'greatest of detective stories."
I read, and re-read this constantly.
You'll be filled with mirth as Ogburn delves into how the so called "shakespeare professors" contradict themselves, unjustly attack Ogburn, and deliberately strive to mislead people. Their use of deceit is at its fullest... it's really a dictatorship; all the "professors" constantly spout lies, and people buy them!
A few errors of Ogburn persist; like all good books. Ogburn didn't give proof that Edward de Vere was buried in westminster abbey, and, he keeps stating as if "William Shake-speare" actually existed! Shakespeare was just a fictitious character to replace de Vere, he never existed. Especially since his countenance derives from a balding Edward de Vere...
Anyone seeking answers and CLARITY behind the plays (such as Hamlet) should buy this book. Hamlet becomes more 3D-shaped once you learn about Corambis being used instead of Polonius in the early printings (a joke on William Cecil meaning "two-hearted;" playing off of his motto of "one heart, one way"). Edward de Vere really was the jester...
Amazing! What an impressive life! He was a charm deceiver and a genius! He played all of us until now!. When I started reading it, I couldn't put them down (with the great book written by Charlton Ogburn: The Mysterious William Shakespeare). I am into Science and Technology and I was never interested in Literature, besides what everybody have studied and be pressured to read in High School; I'm eager to start reading all the plays and poems written by Edward de Vere, the real Shake-speare and I'm planning to visit Italy, France and England and stop by all the places where Edward de Vere stopped to try to see the inspiration for his writings, what a joy it will be; that's a power for these two books. I believe John Looney, the first guy that did the research about Shakespeare in 1920 and came with "Shakespeare Identified" needs a reverence too. You can count me like another Oxfordian.
Just image, not seen TV for 45 days and blow your mind with inspiration a vivid images of a a flamboyant genius man, that had a lot pressure in his life, to keep the appearances. For me, after reading about the tournament he organized in Sicily, he was the inspiration for Miguel de Cervantes for "Don Quixote" (I don't care what the scholars say about it!). You will learn how and why he had to hide the truth about the authorship, his son and why he had to misguide everybody to look in another direction in the poor soul of the Stratford man, that can not stand for a nanosecond the greatness of the life of Edward de Vere; and he did perfectly without leaving tracks, until now than researches and scholars has challenge the old facts. Every important part of his life is written in a serious or sarcastic way in his plays and verses; you have to look for them in them and these authors guided you through them. I'm glad these books have awaken in me the love to read again great books. Let me tell you, It's a bless you can run your imagination wild again, and not be fed only with "packaged trash" from the TV, I'm thankful for this with the two authors.
