Dan Richter remembers
with a message from KEIR DULLEA
Comyns Beaumont was the greatest iconoclast of his age: There was no idea so sacred that he dared not challenge it. He struck out at the prudery of his age and made a roaring success of The Bystander; he struck at the received notions of geology and meteorology, putting forward his own theory of meteorism; he challenged conventional history, asserting that a great deception had been worked by Constantine the Great; he challenged William Shakespeare as the author of the plays we associate with his name, and he even challenged the virginity of the Virgin Queen! These were not the beginning or the end of his rebellion, as his colourful and informative autobiography shows. He may have been a Rebel in Fleet Street, but he was an ardent defender of its freedom to the very end; not only that ,but some of the heresies he was most mocked for in his life are mainstream views in our own time. Many still haven't accepted that Britain is Atlantis, but perhaps in time...
