The man has passed: William Leonard Dalton, but his family legacy lives on!

  I was so sad to hear William Leonard Dalton (pictured left) passed away at the age of 94 in September 2015. I am not a man who breaks down into tears, but I must admit, I shed a tear when I heard Bill (as I fondly called him) had passed away. Bill was a storyteller,… Read more »

Hamlet forensically dated in 1558

I have found documents that forensically date the first performance of Hamlet in 1558, six years before William Shakespeare was born. Soon you can discover these facts in ‘Genesis of the Shakespearean Works’ due to be released in early 2016. The philosophical background and the character of Yorick explained like never before.

In Search of Antonio Bassano’s 1544 Sefer ha-Refu’ot (Book of Remedies)

After publishing ‘Shakespeare Exhumed: The Bassano Chronicles’ I was contacted by a descendant of Antonio Bassano. He told me he had a book that would be of interest to me. I did not understand the significance of Antonio Bassano’s 1544 Sefer ha-Refu’ot (Book of Remedies) until I began translating the Latin, Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek texts…. Read more »

‘Attack of the Ferals’ released

The release date has finally come. Although I wrote this book over a year ago, I could not release it until I received a final reply from the Crime and Misconduct Commission, otherwise a crucial piece of evidence would have been overlooked. ‘Attack of the Ferals’ has been the most challenging book I have ever… Read more »

Genesis of the Shakespearean Works

I’m excited to see the first draft cover of Genesis of the Shakespearean Works. What do you think of my Shakespearean lookalike?                               His features are strikingly similar to the 1623 sketch of William Shakespeare:            … Read more »

Leather Cover of the Bodleian First Folio

In August of 2012 a group of conservators named Sabina Pugh, Julie Sommerfeldt, Arthur Green, Vanessa Redgrave, Thelma Holt, Andrew Honey, and Nicole Gilroy examined and repaired the tattered First Folio in preparation for digitizing.[1]  The Senior Conservator of the Bodleian Library, Andrew Honey, closely examined the First Folio and compared it to other books bound… Read more »

Early evidence of a female author in the First Folio

In the First Folio, there is a dedication to William Shakespeare by Ben Jonson. Within Jonson’s dedication, we find he attempted to defend Shakespeare against claims that a woman wrote the Shakespearean works. In examining the text, we must understand Ben Jonson was a good friend of Shakespeare, and happened to be with Shakespeare when… Read more »

Bassano Legal Case in Romeo and Juliet

In examining the 1597 First Quarto of Romeo and Juliet, we find it did not mention the name William Shakespeare – it was anonymous. This is not surprising, especially considering a number of the characters were developed from a legal case involving the Bassano family members from Verona (where the play is set) and Bassano Del Grappa….

Isn’t Venice breathtaking this time of year?

I am fascinated by Venice. I’m not sure whether it is the history or the crumbing facades, the teal canals, or maybe it is the myriad of mysterious medieval confraternities. Then again, it might be the people? In fact, everything about Venice intrigues me. I visited Venice in 2005, but this short stint merely left… Read more »
