TCBS NUMB3RS Delves Into Centuries-Old Shakespeare Puzzle
San Diego, CA May 22, 2007 - - When CBS NUMB3RS recently aired an episode about an old spy who used Francis Bacon's codes hidden in Shakespeare's works, they might not have realized the truth of their storyline.
Virginia Fellows, a lifelong student of the Bacon codes, wrote The Shakespeare Code--an intriguing tale that explores the question: What if the son of a queen was denied his heritage and couldn't talk about it for fear of his life? How could he make sure that future generations knew the real story? He found a way-by cipher.
The prince? Sir Francis Bacon.
For over 250 years the codes remained undiscovered until the late 1800's when a brilliant young surgeon revealed their secrets to the scorn and ridicule of the clergy and press. Yet his method and fascinating device led to the astounding conversion of many ardent detractors.
Nearly 400 years later, author Virginia Fellows used known decoding systems to reveal the hidden story and cross references them to known historic events. Placed within the works of Shakespeare and other writers of his time is a poignant and tragic tale that ends on a note of triumph.
The encrypted message reveals a true story that far exceeds the drama, comedy, tragedy, intrigue, betrayal, false identity and heroism of the actual plays.
