An Epitaph on the admirable Dramaticke Poet, W. Shakespeare
in Shakespeare's Second Folio by John Milton.
What neede my Shakespeare for his honoured bones, [1]
The labour of an Age, in piled stones
Or that his hallow'd Reliques should be hid
Vnder a starre-ypointing Pyramid?

Deare Sonne of Memory, great Heire of Fame, [5]
What needst thou such dull witnesse of thy Name?
Thou in our wonder and astoneshment
Hast built thy selfe a lasting Monument:

For whilst to th' shame of slow-endevouring Art [9]
Thy easie numbers flow, and that each part,
Hath from the leaves of thy unvalued Booke,
Those Delphicke Lines with deepe Impression tooke

Then thou our fancy of her selfe bereaving, [13]
Dost make us Marble with too much conceiving,
And so Sepulcher'd in such pompe doth lie
That Kings for such a Tombe would wish to die.
[1] need my Shakespeare: can spell Mary Sidney.
    For "Shakespeare" to spell Mary Sidney, we need letter n d m y,
    and "need my" provides the missing letters.
    The beginning of line one, "need my Shakespeare," contains the
    one-way anagram of Mary Sidney, who is Milton's Shakespeare. 
[2] stones: a perfect anagram of Sonets, an obsolete form of Sonnets.
    The labour of an Age: indicating the 1609 Shake-speares Sonnets.
[3] Relique: something kept as a remembrance or souvenir of a person (OED 1d).
[4] starre-ypointing Pyramid: can spell Mary Sidney.
    The question is answered in the next line.
[5] Dear Son of Memory: can spell Mary Sidney.
    "Memory" needs letter a to spell Mary.
    "Dear Son" needs letter y to spell Sidney.
    "Dear" has the missing a, and "Memory" the missing y.
    The beginning of line five, "Dear Son of Memory," contains the
    one-way anagram of Mary Sidney, who is the son of Mnemosyne after
    the nine Muses, or the tenth Muse in sonnet 38. 
[6] dull witness of thy Name: the name William Shakespeare isn't dull.
    This question is answered in the next line.
    such dull witnesse of: can spell Wilton House.
[7] wonder and astonishment: can spell Mary Sidney.
    The two-dimentional anagram is a wonder and astonishment.
[8] lasting Monument: a living monumnet saying Shakespeare isn't dead,
    like Ophelia in Hamlet. The "lasting Monument" (1632) was originally
    "live-long Monument" (1630). Both are close to the "living Monument" for Ophelia.
    Shakespeare is the name of a literary group, an "ever-living poet."
    William Shakespeare is a front man.

Bones and Stones in Shakespeare's epitaph.
Good frend for Jesus sake forbear,
to digg the dust encloased heare.
Blese be ye man that spares thes stones,
and curst be he that moves my bones.
Good friend for Jesus sake forbear, [1]
to dig the dust enclosed here. [2]
Blessed be ye man that spares these stones, [3]
and cursed be he that moves my bones. [4]
[1] forbear: to tolerate, to endure (i.e., not to refrain the digging).
[2] dig: to unearth; to find content deeper than the face meaning.
     dust: confusion, turmoil.
     enclosed here: only dust in the grave; the turmoil is enclosed.
[3] spare: to relieve, free. stone: something hard to break.
     spares these stones: frees (solves) these difficult lines here.
     stones: a perfect anagram of Sonets, an obsolete form of Sonnets.
     spares these: can spell Shakespeare, missing k in sake.
     spares these stones: spares these Shake-speares Sonnets.
[4] he: William Shakespeare.
     move: to change the place or position of;
     to take from one place or situation to another; to shift, remove (OED).
     bone: essential part. cursed ... bones: the epitaph's author curses
     William Shakespeare for shifting the authorship.
     he that moves my bones: Shakespeare is created by moving the bone from
     the true author, based on the "bone of my bones" (GEN 2:23).

Ben Jonson is a one-way anagram of "my bones" (a signature at the end). The capitalized "Blessed Jesus" hints at B. J. for (Good) Ben Jonson, who was protected by Wilton House, Shakespeare's creator.


[1] needs / neede
[4] star-ypointing / starre-ypointing
[6] weak / dull
[8] live-long / lasting
[10] heart / part
[13] it self / her selfe
WHat needs my Shakespear for his honour’d Bones, [1]
The labour of an age in piled Stones,
Or that his hallow’d reliques should be hid
Under a star-ypointing Pyramid?

Dear Son of Memory, great heir of Fame, [5]
What need’st thou such weak witness of thy name?
Thou in our wonder and astonishment
Hast built thy self a live-long Monument.

For whilst to th’shame of slow-endeavouring art [9]
Thy easie numbers flow, and that each heart
Hath from the leaves of thy unvalu’d Book,
Those Delphick lines with deep impression took,

Then thou our fancy of it self bereaving, [13]
Dost make us Marble with too much conceaving;
And so Sepulcher’d in such pompe dost lie
That Kings for such a Tomb would wish to die.

 Mary Sidney: I've Writ. ——  The Y pointing

The "Herbert" of Mary Sidney Herbert is sealed in the upper frame. Three sides of the triangle form her full name.
Mary Sidney "Herbert" on the top.

Sonnet 122

Design concept of Sonnets' dedication is based on name-pointing Astronomy (sonnet 14), and Bible's two tables (sonnet 122).  Sonnet 122 tells the meaning of T.T.:

TThy guift,,thy tables, are within my braine
Full characterd with lasting memory,
- "TThy" and ",," are wilful errors, saying that T.T. stands for
  Thy Tables, and the dedication's punctuation should be fixed.
- "Guift" (gift) hints at dedication; to dedicate is to give.
- "thy tables": Sonnets' tables for its readers, like two tables of
  stone for Christians.
- character'd: a hint to treat the dedication as characters, not words.
  It can be seen as two 12-tier triangles with 154 characters.
12-tier-triangle-2-time hints at 12-2, the reason these wilful errors are placed in sonnet 122. This explains why A Lover's Complaints is clean and Shake-speares Sonnets has many "errors"; they are hints to solve Sonnets.

Item 7: Mr. W. H. as Mr. Wilton House

Bible's two tables contain Ten commandments. Sonnets' two tables contain Ten names related to Wilton House (Mr. W.H.). Mary Sidney is the major one in the middle.

John Marston's 1598 Scourge of Villainy.

...Far fly thy fame,
Most, most of me beloved, whose silent name
One letter bounds. Thy true judicial style
I ever honour, and if my love beguile
Not much my hopes, then thy unvalu'd worth
Shall mount fair place when Apes are turned forth.


William Herbert's Emblem, Goddess and Pyramid.
Minerva Britanna by Henry Percham
Pheon Pyramid by Joshua Sylvester for Mary Sidney
The name SYDNEY is in the middle.
The letter-pYRAMid seals the name MARY.

If Mary Sidney Herbert wants the world to see her, she will provide a way for the world to find her.
