Shakey's Madness: Does a Mental Disorder Reveal the "Real" William Shakespeare offers a brand NEW theory.
In Shakey's Madness, readers will explore the idea of why Edward de Vere, the 17th earl of Oxford makes more sense than ANY other candidate.
Because during his turbulent life, Oxford openly exhibited the signs of epilepsy and bipolar II affective disorder. So did the author of the Shakespeare canon.
Symptoms of this mental disorder can be found in the plays, poems, and sonnets of the *real* author, and perhaps the virgin Queen would NOT wish to be connected to Oxford's authorship at all. After all, bipolar people will often swear not to do something but then later will change their minds and do it anyway. It is the fickle nature of the disease - not a character trait of the individual person.
Sigmund Freud DID NOT believe the man from Stratford was a genius author. Freud spoke about an Oedipal complex that Freud believed was at the heart of the "real" author and was prominently displayed in Hamlet.
Let us compare the two men, Edward de Vere and Shakespeare from Stratford upon Avon:
Edward de Vere was separated from his birth mother and rarely saw her.
De Vere (aka "Oxford) lived at the house of Sir Thomas Smith so he could be taught Greek and Latin at age four, and by the age of eight, Oxford attended college at Cambridge. Then, when he was 12, Oxford's father died and his mother remarried. So, Queen Elizabeth sent for Oxford to live near her.
Oxford was brought up by QE's right-hand man, William Cecil (Baron Burghley) where he lived until he was 21. Oxford later married William Cecil's daughter, Elizabeth Cecil and Queen Elizabeth even attended his wedding.
The man from Stratford, William Shakespeare, from written documents, was brought up on a farm at Ingon Meadow. We know this to be true because a document from the Folger Library has John Shakespeare's name on it. John Shakespeare was a tenant of William Clopton and leased a farm at Ingon Meadow consisting of two parcels: one of 14 acres and the other for 107 acres located five miles away from the town of Stratford upon Avon.
Because the plague had already claimed the lives of his two infant daughters, did John Shakespeare and his wife think it might be safer to live out on a farm, instead of in the town of Stratford upon Avon?
Did they wish to self-quarantine and keep their social distance from others?
The document is dated 1570, and William would have been 6 years old, is there any other reason to believe John Shakespeare was farming this land during the years when William would have allegedly been attending school? Yes. Because the sheriff of Warwickshire had posted "writs of attachias" for John Shakespeare's arrest during the years from 1572-1578. This means that John Shakespeare would have been arrested on the spot if he was a glover and worked in the town of Stratford upon Avon. So, why couldn't the sheriff find him? Because John and his family were not living in town during these years.
The document was a sale agreement in 1570 between William Clopton and Rice Griffin. What if the document were false? What if John Shakespeare had really rented out the land to his brother and still lived in town. Couldn't that have happened?
Real estate agreements were taken much more seriously back then. Therefore, if the contract were found to be false, and John Shakespeare was NOT his tenant, Clopton could have been hung. Therefore, it seems very likely the case that John Shakespeare was Clopton's tenant. Buy the book to find out more!
But what if he was not William Shakespeare's father? Could not there be another John Shakespeare? What if it were a different John Shakespeare who had rented the land from Mr. Clopton?
The evidence that it is the same John Shakespeare is that in 1602, William Shakespeare paid 320 pounds for 107 acres of farmland in Stratford upon Avon - a considerable sum for those days. William Shakespeare bought the land from John A. Coombe, who had purchased the land earlier from Rice Griffin who had bought it from William Clopton.
So, why would William Shakespeare in 1602 pay so much for random farmland? Unless that farmland meant something dear to him. Like it was his actual birthplace? Or his father had once leased it. Does this make sense?
Review #2: "I received a free copy of Shakey's Madness in exchange for an honest review, so here goes. To be honest, I enjoyed the entire concept from the cute cover, to calling him "Shakey" and not Shakespeare and all the humor. Boog's tone is conversational. Usually, when one thinks about books on Shakespeare, one usually does NOT read that the reviewer enjoyed the author's sense of humor. I especially liked the story of how Boog rewrote Shakespeare's sonnet and then surprisingly, I liked Boog's sonnet. A psychiatrist told Boog that no one in over 400 years has thought of the things Boog wrote in this book, and I believe it. It's uniquely original. Shakespeare-lovers might hate this book but I truly enjoyed it. Recommend." JB
