  7. Francis Carr one of my Great Mentors. He proved to me to be more sane than most by putting it out there about Don Quixote and Bacon and Shakespeare. It rocks the core, and Carr is Right about their Connections. Carr also shared with me the Best WWII stories when he was stationed in Italy. I am Grateful to have gone on several Bacon jaunts with Francis Carr and his son Philip who allowed sirbacon.org to post his father's book "Who Wrote Don Quixote?"

  10. That was me back in 1996 or so outside the OJ SImpson Civil Trial in Santa Monica, CA. Someone was nice enough to photograph me and send the pic. That weekend I gave a presentation at the Shakespeare Roundtable on Bacon......
  11. April 9th, 1626, is the day that Sir Francis Bacon masterfully executed his exit from the public Stage. It is with Great Gratitude and Appreciation for the A. Phoenix team in bringing clarity that this day Reveals and Conceals the Great Intention and Greater Purpose of an Extraordinary and Exceptional Man who took all knowledge to Be his Province for the Relief of Man's Estate and Betterment of Mankind.
  12. The Bacon Red Beard, Essex had red hair and of course so did their Mommy Dearest.
  13. Ryan Murtha : Is anyone interested in dissecting the Oxford argument? Maybe just for the sake of being objective and thorough we should. Of course Oxford was a ward of Bacon's uncle Lord Burghley, so any biographical correspondences can be adduced in Bacon's favor as well, he would have been well aware of De Vere's biography. If we are looking at a group of writers, is Oxford one of them? If I remember Larry told me he and Bacon didn't get along, but I haven't read anything about that. Many people are persuaded by these arguments, I haven't gotten into them deeply but I tend to think the whole thing has been manufactured as a smokescreen, as someone put it once to me. It could be seen in a wider context of pretty severe hostility towards Bacon in academia, the things they have said are just incredible. My intuitive guess is that because of Bacon's contribution to science, if he were acknowledged as the principal genius behind Shakespeare, the academic community would have to deal with a colossus and his influence would be hegemonic, everyone would have to defer to him and philosophy departments would probably be eviscerated, nobody would want to read people like Wittgenstein and Derrida etc. Nietzsche knew, but just as he became a Baconian he went nuts, go figure. I used a quote from him as an epigraph in my book, and I had the hardest time finding it in a search, I had to go to the actual book and find it. Google is hiding the fact that Nietzsche was a Baconian. These two links cast light on how Ben Jonson and Bacon thought very little of Edward de Vere. This article explores in Ben Jonson's "Staple of News" what he thought of DeVere. (search the page for DeVere past the mid point of article) https://sirbacon.org/bjonsffolio.htm Bacon being a non blood related cousin to DeVere both being temporary wards to the Cecil Family was able to observe DeVere up close and use it as grist for the mill. So it's no surprise that Bacon would write about him in an unfavorable light in "All's Well That End's Well. " Also Bacon would have known about the tragic incident that took place in William Cecil's household (Lord Burleigh) where DeVere stabbed to death a young unarmed cook. Cecil got DeVere off the legal hook for that. Oxfordians today overlook DeVere's despicable character because they have to. Hard to defend a spoiled rich kid misogynist who did not take all of knowledge to be his province for the betterment and relief of man's estate. https://sirbacon.org/oxfordallswell.htm
