Comment:        RE: SHK 6.0235  Shakespearean Anagrams
 
I much enjoyed Dave Beenken's contribution on the Shakespearean Anagrams.
Although I am not Lacanian enough to appreciate the true seriousness of the
results, I would be interested to know if further Anagram lists exist for the
Complete Works. Also, I hope that most (if not all) of the renderings *dans le
desordre* will at least be of the Telmah Hawkes calibre.
 
Sincerely,
Ton Hoenselaars

Those are pretty good; I've seen variants of several of them.  Another is:
 
ME, LEAR? SPEAK SWAHILI?

Is this well known by Shakespeare scholars?  Probably, but here goes anyway ...
 
The last two lines of the Epilogue in 'The Tempest':
 
    As you for crimes would pardon'd be,
    Let your indulgence set me free.
 
with the addition of the first and last letters of the word 'anagram' (and
taking 'u' = 'v' twice) can be re-arranged to read:
 
    'Tempest' of Francis Bacon, Lord Verulam.
     Do ye ne'er divulge me ye words.
 
However, I believe that Bacon was not created Lord Verulam until 1618, some
years after The Tempest was written.
 
Amusing nonetheless.
 
Cheers,
Alistair Scott
