Summary The Elizabethan Court poet Edward de Vere has, since 1920, lived a notorious second, wholly illegitimate life as the putative author of the poems and plays of William Shakespeare. The work reconstructs Oxford?s life, assesses his poetic works, and demonstrates the absurdity of attributing Shakespeare?s works to him.

Impeccably researched and presenting many documents written by Oxford himself, Nelson?s book provides a unique insight into Elizabethan society a
