No wonder hardly anything in the Sonnets makes sense.

The Sonnets were written entirely in ciphers.

From the fancy ornament on the front cover through to the very last printed character at the end of the book. Ciphers all.

The Lovers Complaint too is in cipher. This 47 verse poem is used in conjunction with the Sonnets, without using them the Sonnets will forever remain disjointed.

Spellings and punctuations must be kept intact, even Sonnet 122. Nothing was done in error. For example has anyone noticed the three dotted Sonnets, 9, 18 and 122?

There was no real 'dark lady', and the two Sonnets poets are Ben Jonson and Marlowe. THe Lovers Complaint was done by Bacon and John Davies.


Just a thought: I wonder how anyone can explain this little gem:

there are 154 Sonnets.
the center Sonnet therefore is Sonnet 77 which says:

Thy glasse will shew thee how thy beauties were,
Thy dyall how thy pretious mynuits waste,
The vacant leaues thy mindes imprint will beare,
And of this booke, this learning maist thou taste.
The wrinckles which thy glasse will truly show,
Of mouthed graues will giue thee memorie,
Thou by thy dyals shady stealth maist know,
Times theeuish progresse to eternitie.
Looke what thy memorie cannot containe,
Commit to these waste blacks, and thou shalt finde
Those children nurst, deliuerd from thy braine,
To take a new acquaintance of thy minde.
These offices, so oft as thou wilt looke,
Shall profit thee, and much inrich thy booke.


which almost screams out CIPHERS!

the square of 7 is 49

Sonnet 49, line 3 says:

When as thy loue hath cast his vtmost summe

the unmost sum in Elizabethan times was the value of the number pi, and it was calculated just like a schoolboys 'twenty two over seven'.

It happens that 154 over 49 results in the number pi.

Has anyone seen this mentioned elsewhere?


The Sonnets are entirely in Cipher.

So I have found after years of experience.

Tsk, tsk... and some people have the audacity to believe that poetry is about poetic content, when all this time it was just about numbers.

audacity? not at all.

Poetry is what it is.

In the case of 'Shakespeare' there's poetry and ciphered poetry.


Who can explain the poetry in Sonnet 77 for example?

and as for numbers:

the word 'number' occours 7 times in the Sonnets

the center of 154 sonnets is 77

the square of 7 is 49

154 divided by 49 is pi......

what is more poetic than that?


no doubt those who are bent towards literature tend to be less interested in number. But that wasn't the case 400 years ago.

The people who engineered the texts we call 'the works of Shakespeare'appreciated all knowledge.

i decided to take the bait. i assume you chose 42 at random:


The 42nd word in Sonnet 42 is 'will'.

According to Francis Bacon's ciphered alphabet the number of the word 'will' is 33, which is the number of Bacon, therefore will is Bacon.

Yes you can do almost anything with numbers, but that's not what I try to achieve.

I don't think you have studied your Douglas Adams well enough, mr. Thomas. :-)
