About the Author

Roger Peters is an artist, philosopher and writer who lives and works in Taranaki, New Zealand. In 1995, he detected a profound and comprehensive philosophy in Shakespeare's 1609 Sonnets. The depth and scope of the insight explains why Shakespeare's plays and poems are increasingly relevant to today's global audience. Peters presented Shakespeare's nature-based philosophy in a 1760-page four-volume set William Shakespeare's Sonnet Philosophy in 2005. Volume 4(Second Edition 2019) explains how the combination of the logic behind Charles Darwin's biology, Ludwig Wittgenstein's philosophy, Stephane Mallarme's poetry, and Marcel Duchamp's art each provide a component that Shakespeare's brilliant philosophy coordinates and completes. Volume 4 then examines a number of significant thinkers to show they are compromised by an inability to understand Shakespeare's nature-based logic.


... there followed a major treatise which analyses the sonnets in extra- ordinary depth. The scholarly input is in the proper sense of the word - awesome. I thought that in the course of my university studies and many years of teaching I had some understanding of Shakespeare's writings. Alongside the Peters' insights this understanding is trite, superficial and inadequate. The work that Mr. Peters has produced is not merely a work of discovery: it is a masterpiece of analysis which breaks new ground and compels by its logic a new view of the sonnets. R. G. Habershon M.A. B.Ed. A.C.C.M. Dip. Teach.
