Happy 465th Birthday, Edward de Vere, a.k.a. Shake-speare?

To all the Oxfordians out there, those “elitist snobs,” (oh, that’s one of the milder monikers for those who dare to believe that Edward de Vere was the real Shake-speare) raise your glass in honor of the poet earl!

Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, K Chiljan

Here’s one of my favorite Shakespearean excerpts, from Sonnet 81:

Your monument shall be my gentle verse,
Which eyes not yet created shall o’er-read;
And tongues to be, your being shall rehearse,
When all the breathers of this world are dead;
You still shall live, such virtue hath my pen,
Where breath most breathes, even in the mouths of men.

Happy Birthday, Edward de Vere!
