…the Earl of Oxford and Shakespeare of Stratford were lovers. It’s the only way it all fits together.
Now Sh is free to be who he is and Eddie his own forever true self. It ties in all the counrty metaphor and husbandry imagery Sh brings to the tables. And the personal stories behind all the plays and poems and sonnets like Hamlet, LLL and All’s Well that Ted brings to the moveable feast.
It also accounts for those early plays like The Famous Victories of Henry 5 and The Troublesome Reign of King John and of course the UR- Hamlet. Oxenford wrote them first and then palmed them off to the world via his batty bwa, when the shame of his theatrical double-life became too much.
However you look at it this must be the answer. We can now span 30 years of theatrical and literary history. It lends credence to the shared patron the Earl of Southampton. The 1000 pound annuity given by the Queen and hinted at the one time payment that Southampton gave Shakey. Also that LLL was written at Southampton’s country house.
It allows Shaggy to be the butt of a smear campaign in The Parnassus Plays and Willobie his Avisa. And for Teddy to pursue his tin mining monopolies sans success but hey the writers knew and loved him. All that’s needed is the syndicate who will eventually publish the First Folio, 19 and 7 years after their own deaths.
Now Orksy can concentrate on the immortality he promises in the works and Billy Frodo can fool the folks at the theatre, whether indoor or out, at court or in public. Naturally the highest secrecy is required from both sides.
