Well here's interesting news for a change. Author Hank Whittemore has issued a press release claiming to have the solution to the sonnets. By solution I assume that means "who they were written about."
The solution of course comes in his new book, "The Monument : 'Shake-Speare's Sonnets' by Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford" which weighs in at 900 pages. What I'm trying to grasp from the press release is how the Earl of Oxford fits into the picture - does the book just start with the premise that Oxford was Shakespeare (as does "Shakespeare by Another Name", which I just wrote about yesterday)?

P.S. Wait til you find out who the Dark Lady is!
