The winner of the 2020 Nobel Prize for Physics: “The [Looney] book made a very strong case – I think I am rather persuaded that … it was Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford … I went to see The Tempest … and that seemed to me very clearly a play where the author himself was revealing himself, and the person Prospero was clearly somebody who was in the aristocracy, he was not somebody who came up from nothing.”

“I have lingering concerns about some of the gaps in the evidence … You can’t help but have these gnawing doubts that this author may, perhaps, have been someone else … Shakespeare is a pseudonym for an exceptionally well-educated person of noble birth who was close to the English throne.”

“I’ve always wanted to know since I was growing up who really wrote the plays of Shakespeare. So I want to be there at that moment when ‘Shakespeare’ – because I don’t think it was William Shakespeare, I’m an Edward de Vere-ian, so the Earl of Oxford – so I’d like to be there 1600’s … ‘Shakespeare’ writing Hamlet.”

“You think about William Shakespeare, you think a man basically with a second grade education wrote some of the greatest poetry of all times? I think maybe not.”

“I'm falling in love with this idea that the real Shakespeare was Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford ... It is astonishing what the Edward de Vere camp has turned up in the way of research to explain all kinds of mysteries of the plays and the life of the so-called Shakespeare. Very, very interesting stuff.”
