"Through Sonnet 20, the poet tells how he must approach this self 
through a pure love, fitting for a godly higher angel sent by the Lord 
to all young men (and to young women too as an angelic young lady) at 
the age of twelve or thirteen, which is part of the allegory that the 
Sonnets as a whole present."

I see now,  it's a bar mitzvhah sermon.

"Any more questions, Larry, or anyone? "

I pass

Stuart Manger, citing my statement "The discovery of 'Shagspere' in the 
dedication would also seem to clear up another mystery: the nature of 
the relationship between the fair youth and the poet, and whether or not 
it was consummated," writes:

 >"Erm.... sorry, don't see why this 'clears it up'? You mean that no fair
 >youth could possibly fall for / be involved with / or know a guy with a
 >name like that? Or what? Yrs baffled of UK."

Stuart, had this come from an American I would simply have assumed they 
hadn't seen the Austin Powers movies. But as you claim to be writing 
from Britain, there's really no excuse that I can see.
