Synopsis: A new view of Shakespeare's sonnets that brings them alive as a chronicle of political intrigue, passion, and betrayal, Shakespeare's Son and His Sonnets is an expanded introduction and synopsis of Hank Whittemore's breakthrough work The Monument.  Here are the highlights of a new discovery about the form and content of the 154 poems printed in 1609.  Shakespeare's Son and His Sonnets offers a clear summary of how Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford constructed a "monument" to preserve "the living record" of Henry Wriothesley, 3rd Earl of Southampton as the rightful successor by blood to Queen Elizabeth I of England. In the exact center of the elegant monument is a 100-sonnet diary from the Essex Rebellion of February 8, 1601 to the Queen's death and funeral on April 28,1603, when the long Tudor dynasty finally ended. Whittemore shows why Oxford was forced to sacrifice his own identity to save the life of Southampton, his unacknowledged royal son, and secure the promise of his release from the Tower of London with a royal pardon. Here is the "smoking gun" of the Shakespeare authorship mystery, answering questions that have puzzled literary scholars and historians for centuries:  Why did "Shakespeare" dedicate his work to Southampton?  Why was the young earl spared from execution?  Why does the author of the Sonnets ask that "my name be buried where my body is"?  Why did King James immediately order Southampton, a convicted traitor, to be set free?

About the Author: Hank Whittemore is author of one novel and ten nonfiction books including The Monument, for which he received the Excellence in Scholarship Award from the Shakespeare Authorship Studies Centre at Concordia University in Portland OR. In addition to researching in London he has performed his 90-minute one-man show Shake-speare's Treason, based on The Monument, at Shakespeare's Globe and Cambridge University. He has delivered papers for the Shakespeare Authorship Studies Conference at Concordia and annual gatherings of the Shakespeare Oxford Society and the Shakespeare Fellowship. His work has appeared in academic journals such as The Oxfordian, Brief Chronicles and Discovering Shakespeare, a special publication edited by Dr. Daniel Wright of Concordia.  He has won two Emmy awards and the Writers Guild of America Award for documentary television, and he was a first-place winner of the Little Theatre of Alexandria National One-Act Play Contest. He began his studies of Shakespeare after playing Cassio and Laertes in Othello and Hamlet at the University of Notre Dame.  Hank and his wife Glo live in Nyack, New York with their son Jake, two Siberian huskies (Scarlett and Max) and Frankie the cat.
