THE REAL SHAKESPEARE \n\nThis book proves that Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, wrote the plays we know as Shakespearean. In the play Hamlet, in a very special coded way, he signed his name Ver hundreds of times. These clues in Hamlet provide the stamp of his authorship! \n\nAll of the Shakespearean plays and sonnets reflect incidents in the life of Edward de Vere. The real events in his life involved violence, intrigue and love-and some of them were shocking! In a web of conjecture those incidents have been tied together in a novel about de Vere. This novel is one of the main parts of this book. The other two parts are the proof!
