Hang Shakespeare by Robert Boog
The two most eminent Shakespeare scholars in all of England are Sir Stanley Wells and Dr. Rev Paul Edmonston who claim that only one person wrote the works of William Shakespeare and he is the man from Stratford-upon-Avon. His name is William Shakespeare and no one should ever doubt this.
However, if you ever decide to view all the evidence like two Supreme Court justices Paul Stevens and Anthony Sirolo did, you may also discover it is NOT the man from Stratford.
This is the First Page of the Folio with an introduction by Ben Jonson. I like to solve Sudoku puzzles and sometimes I write songs. Now, I can't claim they're GOOD songs but you can check them out on YouTube or Spotify.
Okay. See the line, "O, could he but have drawne his wit"? The word "drawne" drew my attention. I thought the Renaissance word "drawde" might have fit better. At least, that's what I had thought. Also, I wondered why the extra "o" in out-doo? Is that just weird spelling?
Then I realized, "drawde" is Edward spelled backward and I noticed something else: if you read the letters to the left, almost straight down. They spell another name: de Vere. Do you see it?
D-E-V-E-R-E, right? Sorry, guess I'm a little sloppy.
Stratfordians may argue "that's not fair! He's cheating!" Why? Because I'm using half of the letter "W" as the "V" in DeVere's name. But don't blame me for the inconsistent typesetting. Typesetters often used two "V"s to create one "W" and sometimes a "V" is used as a "U".
Next, if we look down from the top left, you can see the three capital letters spell out TWO. Just below that is a capital "H" and if you follow the capital letters upward in a diagonal direction, you will see they form the word "Hang" followed by the word Shakespeare. "Hang Shakespeare" but not DeVere. Looke in his Booke. Why?
Could it be that Ben Jonson, who personally knew both men, has left us a secret message? After all, back in those days, thiefs were hung!
Ben Jonson, the author of the Folio's title poem personally knew both men. According to my know-it-all friend, Mr. Google, Stratford died in 1616 and the First Folio came out in 1623. So, if Stratford is already dead, why is Jonson imploring us to "hang" him? It's a true life mystery!
