The Drystone site examines the championing by James, Goding and Leyland of Henry Neville as a Shakespeare authorship contender. In particular it looks at the problem of evaluating 'evidence' obtained from 'decoding' the dedication to the Sonnets and from buried 'clues' in the text of the Sonnets and plays. It argues that such evidence is coincidental and an outcome of a selective and unsystematic process.
The site also investigates the peculiar impracticalities of a Neville/Shakespeare subterfuge.
In a like manner it also investigates Jonathan Bond's claim in his book, The De Vere Code, that the collection of sonnets attributed to William Shakespeare are in fact the works of Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford.Last update April 29, 2013 Mal Haysom
