The influence of the occult on Shakespeare is a fascinating subject. The monument erected to his memory at Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon, provides an invaluable key to solving many aspects of that riddle.
The monument allegorises the dual forces of dissolution and transmutation. Why else should "envious death" covet the Poet's "quick nature"? In a discussion of Masonic, Rosicrucian, Kabbalistic and other occult themes, many of the greatest secrets of the Stratford monument are fully revealed.
In this short work, author M. R. Osborne reveals how the ciphers serve as a code for the soul’s passage from the world of ordinary life to eternal wisdom.
