New Blogs

Posted By on February 7, 2011

Its probably just a coincidence, but since my November post “We need more bloggers,” two new Oxfordian bloggers have sprung up and are holding forth in cyberspace. One of them is my old friend and colleague Richard Waugaman, the Washington DC psychoanalyst who has done so much in such a short period of time not only to popularize the Oxfordian view within the psychoanalytic community, but also conducted an impressive¬† amount of original research on various literary topics, including Shakespeare and the Bible, psychoanalytic theories of pseudonymous publication, and early modern literary numerology.¬† Richard now holds coffee klatsch at The Oxfreudian, where you can read most of his papers and keep up on his blog.

The other blog happens to also be the brainchild of another friend, one of the funniest Oxfordians (or something) I know. Libby’s Knitwitted blog contains a number of surprising revelations, heretofore unknown to Oxfordians (not to mention orthodox bardologists), including her discovery of the 1963 “crypto-Oxfordian” kid’s book, Bertram the Bad.¬† Alan Nelson, eat your heart out.

About the author

Roger Stritmatter is a native liberal humorist who lives in Baltimore, Maryland. Contrary to rumor, he does not live on North Avenue. He does, however, work on North Avenue. A pacifist by inclination, one of his heroes is John Brown. But he thinks that Fredrick Douglass, another of his heroes, made the right decision. Stritmatter's primary areas of interest include the nature of paradigm shifts, the history of ideas, forensic literary studies, MS studies, renaissance literature, and the history of the Shakespearean question, the latter a field in which he has published extensively.

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).
