Welcome to Shake-Speare’s Bible.com.
Our topic is Shake-speare’s Bible. The one he owned.
Really. No joke.
To learn what that means, please visit the “about” page.

Of course, since we don’t believe in censorship and bullying here, and we’re interested in a lot of different subjects — being, as it were, on an intellectual adventure of our lives — you’ll find a lot of extras here.

For example, every once in a while, we diverge to consider other topics in intellectual history — lately, the intense and exciting developments in online news and debate over the resurgence of “Cold Fusion”/LENR energy production, hailed by Gerald Celente and many others in 2011 as a new industrial revolution “in statu nascendi.”

For more information on LENR, please visit e-catworld.com or coldfusionnow!

You won’t be disappointed. For a selection of some of the very best online de Vere/Shakespeare resources, visit my links page. – Ed

If your site fits well with this list, let me know and I can list it.

Update 3/16- categories are not working! Sorry for any confusion. Still working on it.

On Ascertaining the Future – Is Donald Trump about to be Impeached?

Posted By on November 11, 2016

"We're Done Here."

“We’re Done Here (take 2).”

Well, let’s face it; everyone in the predicting business except for Professor Lichtman, Michael Moore, the metadata miners, and to a lesser but significant extent, Nate Silver, got it wrong.  Never before in history, it may be, have so many brilliant people having been armed with so much data, predicted something so badly.

Donald Trump’s followers would have us all believe that this proves that Donald J. Trump is a miracle worker and a genius.

I mean, look at how many people he gets to buy hats with his name of them!

Now there’s a man who has success written all over his freewheeling hands, a real genuine sort of American huckster of the sort traditionally known as confidence men.

Even Trump’s own internal polling numbers told him he was going to lose, and yet he prevailed in a very close election, to take the states he needed to win the electoral college, while losing in the general election count. Is this the death knell of the electoral college system? Is that a good thing, or a bad one? My students are thinking its time for it to go. (more…)

This is a the first in a three-part series of poems written under the general title of “Witness.”

Each poem corresponds to a description of a state of being a witness. The first one is “Pareidolia.”  I wrote this one thinking about  the Oxfrauds and their ridiculous campaign to bring the culture down to their level of intellectual acuity a la the Stratfordian cult.

The First: Pareidolia

I saw the Paul McCartney geoscape (more…)

Hmm……

Years Work in English Study

review

Somewhat to my surprise, On the Date, Sources, and Design of Shakespeare’s Tempest, my 2011 book written with Lynne Kositsky, has been rather favorably reviewed in the most recent issue of OUP’s Years Work in English Studies  by Sheilagh Ilona O’Brien, a PhD candidate in  School of History, Philosophy, Religion and Classics at the University of Queensland and contributing reviewer to the Oxford journal! Details.

In "From Crackpot to Mainstream"Keir Cutler, PhD, takes down the recent Shakespeare Beyond Doubt (OUP, 2013)

Criticism of Cutler's "Is Shakespeare Dead?": "A magnificently witty performance!" (Winnipeg Sun). "Highly entertaining and engrossing!" (EYE Weekly). "Is Shakespeare Dead? marshals startling facts into an elegant and often tenacious argument that floats on a current of delicious irony" (Montreal Gazette).
