Hi all

A post from 2008 mentions that April 23, is the traditional date given for Shakespeare's birthday,
what i would like to ask (and we are talking Elizabethan era) is one simple question:

Y ?

If U don't have a small Latine letter r
and an even lesser Greeke one,
U (VVILL) Ne ve r understand, how

"to draw know ENVY on (Shakespea r es) name."

Ref Mr Ben Johnson's eulogy & etc.

I know this post is probably illegible, but in all honesty, i try my best to pass an astonishing
thing on. Its very hard to do. It was hard enough to see 400 years ago, it is almost impossible to see it now.
Which is weird, because texing is the new language' and i claim that a similar thing is going on in Shakespeare.

If what I claim is true, then there is no chance whatever of truly understanding the Works of William Shakespeare.

If I claim to know Y the famous birth was on that day, and said it is represented on the Sonnets (1609) front cover,
that will sound damn silly. I am not a silly person. I am willing to put my money where my mouth is.

But who will take me up on the thing?
