Thine eyes, that taught the d{U}mbe on high to sing,
And heauie ignorance aloft to flie,
Haue added f{E}thers to the learneds wing,
And giuen grace a double Maiestie.

Yet b{E} most proud of that which I compile,
Whose influence is thine, and bo{R}ne of thee,
In others workes thou doost but mend the stile,
And Arts with thy sweete graces graced be.

But thou art all my art, and doost aduance
As high as learning, my rude ignorance.

<<Odin, the god of *FATE, POETRY & UNCHAINING*, hung upon
the *SHAKING* branches of Yggdrasil, the sacred Tree.
For *nine days* and nine nights he suffered.
Self wounded by his *SPEAR*, sacrificed by his hand, an
offering unto himself. In agony & torment he stared into the
bottomless depths of Niflheim, searching the dark pool in
silence. Finally, with great effort, he reached down before
him. His hand was chilled to the bone in the ice cold waters.
With a cry of triumph he grasped the knowledge he sought
.
. the Sacred *RUNES* , their magic and their power.
. He took the *RUNES* and he used them well.
.
He carved them upon the shaft of his *SPEAR*; he carved *RUNES*
. upon all things. By this means he obtained power over all.>>

Epilogue _ROSALYNDE OR, EUPHUES' GOLDEN LEGACY_

Here, gentlemen, may you see in Euphues' Golden Legacy, that such as
neglect their fathers' precepts, incur much prejudice; that division
in nature, as it is a blemish in nurture, so 'tis a breach of good
fortunes; that virtue is not measured by birth but by action; that
younger brethren, though inferior in years, yet may be superior to
honors; that concord is the sweetest conclusion, and amity betwixt
brothers more forceable than fortune. If you gather any fruits by this
Legacy, speak well of Euphues for writing it, and me for fetching it.
If you grace me with that favor, you encourage me to be
more forward; and as soon as I have overlooked my labors,
expect the Sailor's Calendar.

It should be apparent to anyone possessing normal common sense, then, that
Shakespeare's authorship of the works is not merely "pro[B]able" or "likely,"
as some softhe[A]ds have put it, but absolutely [C]ompelling. Yet it is
common kn[O]wledge that after Delia [BACON] published her vague notions
about authorship in 1856 defenders of her unorthodox views and creators
of others multiplied like rabbits, and any reader of the modern newspaper
knows that the tribe increases every year.

<<THOMAS LODGE (1558 - September 1625) was an English dramatist.
He was born at West HAM, the second son of Sir Thomas Lodge,
who was Lord Mayor of the City of London in 1562-1563.

Young Thomas served as *PAGE* to the Stanleys, Earls of Derby,
until approximately 1571, when he enrolled in the
Merchant-Taylors' School. From there he went on to
Trinity College, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1577.>>

I first got excited about Oxfordian ciphers from reading about 2
amazing near anagrams in Michell's book _Who Wrote Shakespeare_:

I read Michell's hardback book 25 years ago and it
soon after fell apart so I bought a new paperback.

Michell not only sold me on ciphers but also on group theory...

I think Oxford wrote the (self referential) Hamlet 1603
Quarto while others (including Rutland & Lord STRANGE)
improved upon it for the 1604 Quarto.

After Rutland died in 1612
William Stanley honored him in Hamlet's letter:

Epilogue _ROSALYNDE OR, EUPHUES' GOLDEN LEGACY_

Here, gentlemen, may you see in Euphues' Golden Legacy, that such as
neglect their fathers' precepts, incur much prejudice; that division
in nature, as it is a blemish in nurture, so 'tis a breach of good
fortunes; that virtue is not measured by birth but by action; that
younger brethren, though inferior in years, yet may be superior to
honors; that concord is the sweetest conclusion, and amity betwixt
brothers more forceable than fortune. If you gather any fruits by this
Legacy, speak well of Euphues for writing it, and me for fetching it.
If you grace me with that favor, you encourage me to be
more forward; and as soon as I have overlooked my labors,
expect the Sailor's Calendar.

It should be apparent to anyone possessing normal common sense, then, that
Shakespeare's authorship of the works is not merely "pro[B]able" or "likely,"
as some softhe[A]ds have put it, but absolutely [C]ompelling. Yet it is
common kn[O]wledge that after Delia [BACON] published her vague notions
about authorship in 1856 defenders of her unorthodox views and creators
of others multiplied like rabbits, and any reader of the modern newspaper
knows that the tribe increases every year.

<<THOMAS LODGE (1558 - September 1625) was an English dramatist.
He was born at West HAM, the second son of Sir Thomas Lodge,
who was Lord Mayor of the City of London in 1562-1563.

Young Thomas served as *PAGE* to the Stanleys, Earls of Derby,
until approximately 1571, when he enrolled in the
Merchant-Taylors' School. From there he went on to
Trinity College, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1577.>>
