Seek and ye shall find.

Ms. Amit's thesis would seem far less strained if she could identify the
supposed Hebrew source and trace its provenance into Shakespeare's
hand.  As it stands, her argument reminds me of nothing so much as the
buried anagrams of De Vere's name or a Latin declaration that Bacon
wrote the plays.
