Subject: 	Sonnet 76

In Sonnet 76 at line 7 we have

"That euery word doth almost fel my name,"

[That every word doth almost tell my name,]

I have seen a number of attempts to understand what the writer meant. I 
have formed my own opinion based on the fact that the writer was 
certainly not sitting at a typewriter.

I would be grateful to read other people's opinions of what they think 
was going though the writer's mind as quill touched paper.

Regards,
Ben Alexander
