The Second Cryptographic Shakespeare: A Monograph Wherein the Poems and Plays Attributed to William Shakespeare are Proven to Contain the Enciphered Name of the Concealed Author, Francis Bacon
Westchester House, 1990 - 313 pages
There is considerable doubt about the facts of Shakespeare's life. For a long time I have been certain that the Bard of Avon was a decoy. Now, by science, I intend to prove that our actor, Mr. Shakespeare, is worthy only of that pity we reserve for literary impostors. Why might Bacon have concealed his creations? Are there ciphers in Shakespeare's works?
