Baconian Acrostics, Anagrams, Monograms, & Secret Signatures, in the Shakespeare Poems & Plays


A Phoenix

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Here is part of my answer to a question asked by Peethagoras in anoher topic belonging to "Baconian Ciphers".

My answer being essentially based on anagrams and acrostics, it seems more judicious to me to post it here, for the sake of centralizing the information.

I already shared with you my thoughts on Shakespeare's Monument and its link (in my view) with both the First Essay "Of Truth" of Francis Bacon (1625) and the pages 169 of the First Folio.

 

The choice that was made to show Shakespeare's teeth could be in the same vein, and be a clue that guides us towards an important page ... page 26 (B.F.) of HISTORIES, in the play Richard II.

I shared with you the idea that from the letter D of Doubly (in Italic) the name "TUDOR" could be hidden in acrostic.

And in the middle (Mediocria firma) we can easily find the letters forming the name BACON.

Remember that "Doubly" appears a first time on the same page in an important passage I talked about in my first video " 1623'. Here are the fruits of the extension of my research on this page.

And this page is also the only page of the First Folio in which can be found together the Falcon and the spear that are two emblems of Shakespeare's Coat of arms, visible on Shakespeare's funerary Monument.

I have more to share but I keep it for a symbolic date ! 😉

Hi everyone,

I recently shared (in another topic), a poem of my creation (The Alchemical Quest), a tribute to Francis Bacon and Ben Jonson with many references to my research.

Evidently, I concealed a reference to number 103, the simple cipher of SHAKESPEARE, and I already shared with you, by the past, my thoughts concerning the right column of page 103 of  Much ado about Nothing.

This evening, I think that I found a message hidden in acrostic, in the left column.

This is the word "WIT" followed by the letters "B CA" that put me on the path.

Once again, I do not know if it was intended or if it is simply the fruit of my imagination,

but this is an interesting solution.

Notice that in acrostic we have : (WIT) I , BAC. T.T. A SHADoW

I did notice that the two upper case words add up to 103 Simple cipher.

PATIENCE GRACE is 103 Simple and 58 Short cipher the same as SHAKESPEARE.

Also notice the Kaye cipher 337 of PATIENCE GRACE which is the same as WILL SHAKESPEARE.

I really like that the first letters P and G of PATIENCE GRACE are in Simple cipher P=15 and G=7 to make a nice 157.

😉

And we know ONE HUNDRED THREE is 157 Simple and 365 Kaye cipher.

In some time I'll share my findings and fun back in The Alcehmical Quest thread where you shared your puzzle. I wonder how many words are between PATIENCE and GRACE and why one of the words is italic and the other is not. 😉

SPOT ON,  ROB ! 😊

Initially there was only "GRACE" with uppercase letters ( GRACE = 33 simple cipher).

But I realized that with "PATIENCE" I obtained these interesting numbers. 🙂 

There is also the number 222 linked to BACON in the First Folio.

To be honest , the P of Patience working with the G of Grace to give 157 was not intended.

But I love the idea !

Could it be a gift of the ethereal realms ?

Notice on page 222, the Capital Letters in acrostic following FAST BACON.😊

"In some time I'll share my findings and fun back in The Alchemical Quest thread where you shared your puzzle."

I am looking forward to discovering all the fruits of your decipherment.😊

I would like to share with you something that I found few years ago.

 I was exploring the 62nd page of the First Folio (62# F.B.) and I discovered the passage talking about the "twin Letters" in the play "The Merry Wives of Windsor".

In this passage, Shakespeare mentions , a Twin Brother, a Giantesse and Mount Pelion.

I wondered if it could be clues.

Then, I learned the Story of the twin Giants OTOS and EPHIALTES, the ALOADAE , the sons of Neptune, and their link with Artemis.

https://www.theoi.com/Gigante/GigantesAloadai.html

For me, Shakespeare/Bacon should have concealed the name of one of the two Giants,"the twyn-brother".

And I think that I found it !

image.png.e40e701f974c10383599eb7f7e4457d1.pngWhy Ephialtes ?

Because of his spear and because of Artemis.

I remind you that a few lines below there is a reference to Actaeon.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Actaeon

For Francis Bacon, the myth of Actaeon refers to the secrets of the Princes.

https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo/A28200.0001.001/1:83?rgn=div1;view=fulltext

And I wonder if it could hide a reference to another Ephialtes.

EPHIALTES OF ATHENS
