The following quote contains a secret message. It’s not too tricky. See what will be seen on the mystery of identity in yesterday’s light. The first person to decode it gets a lunch on me.
She should have died hereafter
There would have been a time for such a word
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
And the prize goes to Dr Raveem Ismail, an Oxford man through and through, who spotted that this was in Francis Bacon’s cipher (a Cambridge man). Bacon is sometimes suggested as the real author of Shakespeare’s plays. The coded message reads “My name is Francis Bacon and I wrote this”.
