"I came across the phrase 'the stings and terrors of a guilty conscience' in an anonymous treatise from 1595 and I couldn't help noticing the similarity with the line 'the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune' from Hamlet's famous 'to be or not to be' speech. Not something you come across everyday, but when I discovered that the man who wrote it is cited again and again by different scholars as a major source for the plays I had to conduct a thorough examination of his life which revealed him in a sequence of unique places, places only the author could have been."
HOLOFERNES: I will something affect the letter, for it argues facility.
The preyful princess pierced and prick’d a pretty
Some say a sore; but not a sore, till now made
sore with shooting.
The dogs did yell: put L to sore, then sorel jumps
Or pricket sore, or else sorel; the people fall a-hooting.
If sore be sore, then L to sore makes fifty sores
Of one sore L an hundred make by adding but one more L.
‘Affecting the letter,’ the author tells us, ‘argues facility’ and any grammar school boy knows that the Roman numeral for 100 is C. But that’s not what he’s telling us, ‘Of one sore L an hundred make by adding but one more L’ Of one L -to achieve 100 per cent- add but one more L, which gives you LL, the initials of Lewes Lewkenor.
 A sorel is a buck in its third year.
But me thinks I hear it upbraid unto me, that it is now rather a time to do than to write: I confess it to be so for him that is well set on work: and yet he that writeth well is never the farther off from doing well: so that for my part I hold it no disgrace to write so long as my pen uttereth no dishonesty. My education hath been in the wars: This I only do to beguile time; wishing that whosoever shall herein censure me amiss, would be as ready as myself, both in mind and body, when either commandment of my prince, or occasion of my country shall injoin me to other courses.
