Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1602 Caliban's Father

Joseph Egert writes: "Bruce Young remains unconvinced as to Myriad Man's 
anagrammatic playfulness. There is little question Montaigne's 
"cannibal" figured prominently in the monster's moniker."

And which is a good enough anagram for the rules of the Elizabethans, as 
written out by William Drummond of Hawthornden.. Hamlet, of course, is a 
perfect anagram for Amleth. Those who deny such word-play, or even 
ciphers, in Elizabethan published work, would not recognize that the E's 
were the most secretive literary society that ever existed, from the 
tips of their tongues to nibs of their pens, a literary bunch of writers 
so folded in on themselves it's a wonder that their pages can be laid flat.
