Shakespeare Solved ®


Shakespeare Solved ® is a forthcoming series of novels that covers the Bard's entire life and work.

These novels solve the mysteries surrounding Shakespeare by transporting us back in time, to walk in his shoes, and see his world through his eyes.

Only when we see Shakespeare in his original historical context can we understand what his plays and poems really mean.

This blog explains some of my ideas and discoveries, to prepare for this series of novels.

Discoveries & Discoverers -- Higgs Boson

We live in an age where so many discoveries are being made.


I discovered a new way to see Shakespeare, and the scientists at CERN have discovered the existence of the a heavy boson that may in fact be the Higgs Boson subatomic particle, aka "The God Particle."

What does this mean exactly? Well, I am no scientist, but it means that we can better understand the composition of the universe, and how mass is formed. It would also help to explain the presence of stars, planets and human beings.

I also can't stop thinking that there is something that holds Shakespeare's plays together, that gives them their shape, and explains the plots, the characters and the dialog. What is it? The audience. Shakespeare's audience. He wrote for his audience and if at any moment his plays failed to keep their attention, then he was done for.

We have lost touch with Shakespeare's audience, and therefore we have lost touch with the plays themselves. The better we understand his audience, as I have tried to do in my adaptations, the better we can appreciate the plays, and Shakespeare himself.


I have always been fascinated by these scientific efforts to unlock the meaning of the universe. When I was at college I was more fascinated with world religions, and what it was that motivated people throughout history and all over the world. I never thought that physics and religion were mutually exclusive. One of my favorite books was "The Tao of Physics."

Well, here is a case in point. Here are physicists (who probably don't go to church on Sundays) who are searching after a "God-Particle!"

Cheers,
