About the Book

It is possible that this book will reveal for the first time ever who really had possession of the Shakespeare Sonnets when they were delivered to the printer for publication in the year 1609.

That person was not William Shakespeare or Shakspere of Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Neither was it the 3rd Earl of Southampton, William Hall nor William Herbert.

Who then?

Someone, to use a crime analogy, never previously suspected. Never ever even mentioned in connection with the Shakespeare Sonnets.

Yet the evidence is there.

Where?

In the Dedication to the Sonnets. The Cryptogram concealed inside the Dedication has been broken, revealing that the inspirer of the Sonnets is the 3rd Earl of Southampton, Henry Wriothesley, and that the true author of the Sonnets is Edward de Vere.

But this book goes beyond that to show the remaining secrets encoded in the text of the Dedication. What is revealed is the possessor of the Sonnets, the person who brought them to the printer to be published, and his strange and previously unknown connection to the true Shakespeare.

Plus new information on the Dark Lady. Who she was and how she changed Shakespeare's life forever. And other research that links the 17th Earl of Oxford with the works of Shakespeare. The investigations detailed in The Great Shakespeare Hoax are amplified and reinforced here with new evidence, including what may be the first poem composed by Shakespeare for publication...at age sixteen.

There is also an analysis of a sparkling sonnet which even some orthodox Shakespearean scholars have mentioned as almost certainly being by Shakespeare, but which beyond all common sense or scholarly explanation has never been proposed for admission into the Shakespeare canon...until now.


About the Author

Randall Barron has published various articles in the Shakespeare-Oxford Newsletter and has addressed the 1998 Shakespeare conference at Concordia University.

He has a website expressing his views on the Shakespeare Authorship Question plus three previous books on the subject. Those are The Great Shakespeare Hoax, Shakespeare + The Queen, and a novel, Against This Rage, the last under the pen name of Robert D'Artagnan. All are available through 1stBooks.

As to his Shakespeare research, he is most proud of having pointed out on his website and to the audience at Concordia University where Shakespeare himself declares he is a knight, and of his investigations into Love's Martyr, an enigmatic and obscure book published in 1601, which he believes is another important key to understanding The Great Shakespeare Hoax. Now, to that record, he adds the startling new theories about the Shakespeare Sonnets and how the highest levels of English government controlled and shaped their impact upon the world.

He and his wife, Gloria, also were the first to discover and call attention to the INQUISITION POST MORTEM of Edward de Vere in London, in 1992....de Vere being now for many the True Shakespeare.

Shakespeare Through the Looking Glass breaks new ground in the controversy over the Authorship Question. For the first time, the mysterious Dedication to the Shakespeare Sonnets is made to reveal all its secrets. The explosive conclusions reached herein are bound to set off outrage from orthodox Shakespearean critics and new controversy, which can only be healthy in light of the present unresolved situation.
