Call for Research 2 - Table of Associations 3

Call for Research 3 - Table of "Associations 3 

Here is the third and last Table of Associations. This time with the emphasis on Bacon's strengths. I hope you all find it interesting. And if you can help in completing the unfilled cells that would be very much appreciated.

Call for Research 1 - Table of Associations

 I was working on this table many years ago and stopped. Now I don't have much time to keep working on it. So I'm making it public and asking if anyone can provide some help to complete it. Where there are asterisks for Oxford it means that I think this is true but do not have the express evidence at hand to prove or support it. If you want to provide that evidence I would be most appreciative. I got this idea from Sabrina Feldman who used this type of comparison to promote her candidacy of Thomas Sackville as the true author of the Shakespeare works. So I started working on this similar chart that incuded Bacon and Oxford. A Yes or No in a cell means there is evidence to support the answer.

  Unfortunately it appears that the last column will post with the overlap of the Blog Archive dates.

Some final quotes on early opinions on Shakespeare and Bacon writing similarities

 "…The volunteer counsel [for the Stratfordian view], who have put more passion than reason in their arguments, and seem more satisfied that the crowd is with them than they are with the strength of their case, might as well abandon their line of defence, which has been to accuse you of being half-educated, cranky and insane . . . The personage to whom you assign the just fame of these marvelous productions seems to have been in every way born, educated and equipped for such a work. he had the requisite learning, the speculative aptitude and habit, the rhetorical skill and poetic feeling that the most cursory reading discloses as the everwhere dominant  tone in this grandest diapason of human speech."

--George Talbot, author and retired lawyer, 1904

"In wit . . . He [Bacon] never had an equal"

 - Mcaulay

"Lord Bacon was the greatest genius that England, or perhaps any country, ever produced."

-- Alexander Pope , 1741

"We are all Baconians here."

--Rev. H. R. Haweis, adding that he had never met anyone who, having thoroughly investigated the matter, came to a different conclusion.

Can anyone provide any similar evidence to anywhre near the same extent showing another candidate with as much recognized close language and knowledge likenesses between their candidate with the Shakespeare works? I haven't seen any.

Reputable Thinker's Opinions on Shakespeare and Bacon

 "Wilde (Lord Penzance)  argued, following Lord Campbell and others, that the works of Shakespeare are extremely accurate in matters of law. In The Bacon-Shakespeare Controversy (1890) he wrote of "Shakespeare's perfect familiarity with... English law... so perfect and intimate that he was never incorrect and never at fault", arguing that this was evidence that the plays were the work of a legal expert such as Bacon.[8] Several other authors followed Wilde's arguments about the legal expertise used in Shakespeare, including Sir George Greenwood." 

--  Wikipedia

"The Baconian thesis has up to this day been asserted in presence of three successive generations by able and most sincere writers . . . Such a controversy is therefore not disdainfully to be set aside, nor a priori declared unworthy of consideration."

.-- Journal Des Debats, Paris, 1903

"I cannot accord it to him who, though rich, did not educate his children, and who, though he sought fame through a coat-of-arms claimed to have been earned by the valor of his great-grandfather, nowhere, not even in his last will and testament, claimed the fame of authorship,--such authorship,--and whose sole posthumous anxiety centred on his dust and bones remaining undisturbed in the chancel of Stratford church." 

-- J. Warren Keifer, Former Speaker of the National House of Representatives, Washington, D.C., 1904

"You ask my opinion, in a few words, upon the Bacon-Shakspere controversy, which has been a study of immense interest to me for nearly twenty years. In examining a problem of such importance to  English literature as the authorship of the plays attributed to Shakspere one can hardly use too great deliberation. I felt this so strongly that it was only after about ten years' reading and reflection that I became a convinced Baconian. I have been brought to this conclusion mainly by the impossibility of reconciling the facts we know concerning the life of the man of Stratford with the technical and universal knowledge inherent in the plays."

-- Hon. William Waldorf Astor, attorney, politican, businessman, newspaper publisher, 1904

Still More Shakespeare and Bacon at the turn of the Century

 "The mere theory  that Bacon was the real author of the plays, though the mass of Shakespeare's readers still set it down as a delusion, does not, indeed, contain anything essentially shocking to common sense. On the contrary, it is generally recognized that on purely a priori grounds there is less to shock common sense in the idea that those wonderful compositions were the work of a scholar, a philosopher, a statesman, and a profound man of the world than there is in the idea that they were the work of a notoriously ill-educated actor, who seems to have found some difficulty in signing his own name." 

--W. H. Mallock, 1901

"The difficulty hitherto of getting a fair hearing for the mere literary argument has chiefly arisen from the illogical resentment shown by many people at the bare idea of dethroning a national idol. Shakespeare has so long been thought of as a genius of the very foremost order that any suggestion, tending to prove that he was a very commonplace person in reality, is treated as though it involved an attempt to detract from the sublimity of the works bearing his name. But in reason it must be conceded that we worship the memory of Shakespeare because we admire Hamlet, king Lear, and the rest. We do not admire the plays because any particular man wrote them . . . The question is still one which most English newspapers and periodicals are afraid to discuss freely for fear of offending the blind prejudice above referred to. Orthodox Shaksperean biographers simply ignore the all important question as though it were a craze in notorious antagonism to well-known facts, like the idea that the earth is flat, and in this way the minds of people who might be capable of independent judgment, if they had the evidence before them, are left in complete ignorance of the prodigious force residing in the Baconian argument -- unless, indeed, they have gone out of their way to make a special study of the Baconian books."

--A.P. Sinnet, 1901

"It is desperately hard, nay, impossible to believe that this uninstructed, untutored youth, as he came from Stratford, should have written these plays; and almost as hard, as it seems to me, to believe that he should have rendered himself capable of writing them by elaborate study afterwards . . . The difficulty of imagining this your man to have converted himself in a few years from a state bordering on ignorance into a deeply read student, master of French and Italian, as well as of Greek and Latin, and capable of quoting and borrowing largely from writers in all these languages, is almost insuperable . . . His name once removed from the controversy, there will not, i think, be much question as to the lawyer to whose pen the Shakespeare plays are to be attributed."

--Lord Penzance, 1903

"I am not a Baconian, but I  have a perfectly open mind on the matter. I have no objection at all to being  convinced that Sir Francis  Bacon wrote the splended dramas attributed to Shakespeare; it is so much easier to suppose from our unquestionable knowledge of his life and genius that he MIGHT have written them, than to accept  from the unquestioned little that we know of Shakspere and his life that he COULD have done so. It is unnecessary to refer at length to the extraordinary similarity in the knowledge of law, science, art, politics, history, literature, and every other branch of human understanding, exhibited by Shakespeare and Bacon."

--R. B. Marston, 1902
