    The case for Edward De Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford. Many Oxfordians believe that the true author of Shakespeare’s plays was an aristocrat named Edward De Vere. The evidence for this comprehensive, ranging from Edward de Vere’s aristocratic knowledge of the upper classes through to his education and the structural similarities between his. The identity of Shakespeare, the most important poet and dramatist in the English language, has been debated for centuries. This historical work investigates the role of Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, establishing him as most likely the author of Shakespeare’s literary oeuvre.

    Transcript. Nelson: Arguments tying Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, to Shakespeare fly in the face of fact and was a poet, but the poetry of his adult years is so unlike Shakespeare, and so devoid of literary genius, that even his supporters dismiss it as his 'juvenilia'.Oxford patronized his own playing company from to Early life. John de Vere, 13th Earl of Oxford, was born on 8 September , the second son of John de Vere, 12th Earl of Oxford (23 April – 26 February ), and his wife Elizabeth Howard (c. –), the daughter of Sir John Howard and Joan Walton.. In February the 12th Earl, his eldest son, Aubrey de Vere, and Sir Thomas Tuddenham, the 12th Earl's former Father: John de Vere, 12th Earl of Oxford.

In effect this was his “manifesto” as a young writer, publicly championing the humanistic side of the Renaissance with its medieval traditions of chivalry and, too, expressing values and . The works attributed to Oxford range from George Puttenham’s retrogressive _The Arte of English Poesie_,“somewhat out of fashion by ” (Steven May, ODNB), with its curious choice of poetic models for a “Shakespeare” in the age of Kyd and Marlowe; to a poem by A. G. (probably Arthur Golding) in praise of double-entry book-keeping (I /5(12).
