Steven Sabel talks the Oxfordian Shakespeare case, and resources for further investigation.

Steven Sabel is the host of the terrific Oxfordian-themed Shakespeare podcast Don’t Quill the Messenger.

Both he and I are Oxfordians, and we dedicated an hour to outlining the Oxfordian case and the evidence that pushed both of us over the line of doubt.

If you are interested in exploring this further, I recommend the following:

First, subscribe to Steven’s podcast. Many of the scholars listed below have appeared on his show, and Steven’s love for the topic is infectious. I love every episode of this show.

The Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship website is loaded with insightful and useful information on deVere and the authorship questions, and you can watch lectures and presentations from Oxfordians (including Steven) on their YouTube channel.

Hank Whittemore’s 100 Reasons Why Shake-speare was the Earl of Oxford. Whittemore is a terrific Oxfordian scholar, and this book remains the most concise and convincing reference source for anyone on the fence. Hank’s blog is also a great resource.

If you’re looking for a more academically rigorous, enthralling page-turner of a book, Katherine Chiljan’s superb Shakespeare Suppressed is for you. Chiljan focuses on how and why deVere was nearly erased from history. You can see a talk she gave on the subject to the SOF here.

If you’re feeling ambitious and want to go back to where it all started, J. Thomas Looney’s century-old work Shakespeare Identified is still available. Some of Looney’s conclusions are no longer necessarily the mainstream Oxfordian narrative, but his work was the breakthrough for Oxfordianism.

The Frontline episode mentioned on the podcast – the gateway drug for so many Oxfordians – is available on YouTube and included here:

Lastly, I encourage you to watch the lecture that ultimately convinced me, given by the late actor, lawyer, and Oxfordian Tom Regnier, who lost his life to Covid-19 a year ago. His SOF obituary can be found here, and watch the memorial highlight reel of Tom’s talks, put together by the SOF, here: Remembering Tom Regnier
