Christopher Marlowe Wrote The Sonnets

The 400 year old riddle of Shakespeare’s mysterious identity has now been solved! Overwhelming evidence has been discovered that proves Christopher Marlowe to have been the actual author of Shakespeare’s Sonnets. The Sonnets are the closest thing we have to Shakespeare’s autobiography, yet the story they tell has no connection whatever to the life of the Stratford man. It is, however, the story of Christopher Marlowe and his life following the dramatic subterfuge of the Deptford ‘reckoning’.

The evidence proving ‘William Shakespeare’ to be Marlowe’s pen-name in the years after 1593 comes in an acrostic message hidden in the poem proclaiming – KIT MARLOWE WROTE THIS. The validity of this stunning message is confirmed by the way that its every minute detail serves to draft Marlowe’s unique Masonic mark. A host of secondary evidence is also presented.

Read the book and you will discover the facts which overturn 400 years of orthodox belief.

Readers’ comments about the book include phrases like, “An amazing discovery”, “A remarkable piece of work”, “An enormous tour de force”, “Devastating”, “Brilliant and important”.

Research Background

This book is the product of fifteen years intensive research. It started with a hunch that the only person capable of filling the requirements of the mystery of William Shakespeare’s identity was his brilliant forebear Christopher Marlowe. Over time, this hunch solidified into conviction and especially so after I came into contact with A.D. Wraight and her solution to the authorship problem, The Story That The Sonnets Tell. After reading Wraight’s book, I set out to see if I could find concrete evidence that would prove the historical case beyond doubt.

It occurred to me that if Kit Marlowe had survived and written Shakespeare’s plays and poems he would have almost certainly have wished to let posterity know, in some way, that it was him and not the shrewd Stratford hustler who was the true author. When considering how he might have done this, I was struck by another observation of Wraight’s that the author was likely a Freemason. Following from this, I felt sure that the key to the evidence I sought would lie in Masonic forms of cryptography.

The cryptographic technique most commonly associated with Freemasonry is literary cabala (see Masonry and the Cabala). This form of cryptology, which involves coding units of text to create specific numerical patterns with their own embedded messages, would obviously be suitable for a writer like Shakespeare to use. The first problem involved finding the code for English used by the Freemasons. This is one of the best-kept secrets of Freemasonry, but eventually I tracked it down in the most authoritative work on numerology and cabala from the early sixteenth century – Henry Cornelius Agrippa’s ‘Three Books of Occult Philosophy’ (1531).

The next problem was that, although when I applied the code to Shakespeare’s Sonnets the patterns that emerged were far from random, I could not make sense of them. There were some tantalising clues, but I couldn’t piece together the whole picture. It was obvious that there was a further level of encryption at work. Eventually I cracked this, too: I stumbled on the second key, which involves a permutation according to the most fundamental figure of Masonic ‘sacred geometry’ – the right-angled triangle. This geometric figure constituted Marlowe’s personal Masonic mark. It is a device he used with complete consistency throughout the Sonnets when recording and coding his identity.

With the two keys in my possession, I was finally able to unravel the cabalistic messages ‘William Shakespeare’ left in his autobiographic Sonnets.

However, this was not the end of the matter. In January 2003 I stumbled on something even more exciting. I found an acrostic cryptogram embedded in the verse structure of the Sonnets. This amounts to nothing less than a signed confession of authorship – a totally unambiguous message written by ‘our ever-living poet’ KIT MARLOWE.


Shakespeare’s Sonnets Written by Kit Marlowe

“Omnia in numeris sita sunt” ~ Everything lies veiled in numbers


Chapter List

1 – The Set Up
The Shakespeare Problem
An outline
of the reasons why William Shakspere of Stratford-upon-Avon could
not have been the author of Shakespeare’s literary works.
The Key Suspect
An explanation
of why Christopher Marlowe is far more likely to have been the true


2 – Forensic Background

The Meaning of Numbers
the role of numerology in Renaissance philosophy and specifically
focuses on Professor Alastair Fowler’s study of the numerology underlying
Shakespeare’s Sonnets.
Shakespeare’s Masonry
chapter starts by confirming that Freemasonry was active and flourishing
in England in Shakespeare’s time. It proceeds to examine evidence
that Shakespeare’s plays are full of Masonic references and allusions,
and makes a particular study of Anthony
and Cleopatra
. Finally it looks at Masonic symbolism embedded
in the Sonnets.
An introduction
to literary cabala. Historical examples in Hebrew and Greek are cited
from the first verse of Genesis and the name Jesus Christ, respectively.
The significance of the numbers 2701, 2368 and 3168 is explained in
some detail.
Later Cabala
The gematria
code of Latin and English is recovered from darkness of sworn oaths
of secrecy. Examples of its use, both by Shakespeare’s contemporaries,
and in the symbolism of Freemasonry
are demonstrated.
The Suspect’s Form
An examination
of Christopher Marlowe’s track record as a cabalist. The gematria
properties of his famous play Tamburlaine
are brought to light.
A Hostile Witness
based techniques are tested against the touchstone of standards laid
down for literary ‘ciphers’ by the famous cryptologists William and
Elizebeth Friedman. A seminal distinction is established between ‘odd
numbers’ and numerical patterns – the former being meaningless, the
latter having the potential to be highly meaningful.


3 – The Evidence in the Sonnets

Smoking Gun
The first
body of evidence is found in Thomas Thorpe’s dedication prefacing
the Sonnets. We find out, for example, how the number 2120,
which is the value both of “OUR EVER-LIVING POET” and the whole dedication,
indicates the Freemason Christopher Marlowe. Many strands of confirmatory
evidence are presented.
Set of Fingerprints
in the Sonnets corresponding to the gematria value of Marlowe’s
name are analysed. We find that the poet left us his calling card
under the names ‘Kit Marlowe’, ‘Christopher Marlowe’ and ‘Christopher
Marlowe Master Mason’. Sophisticated and mutually referring patterns
are found at these locations.
Signed Confession
A sensational
cryptogram is revealed by means of an acrostic letter grid. The message
states very bluntly – KIT MARLOWE WROTE THIS.
The text of the message is explicitly signalled and it also embodies
numerical features that prove its intentionality through systematic
reference to Marlowe’s Masonic Mark. The acrostic grid also has other
underlying patterns pointing directly to Marlowe’s claim to authorship.


4 – A Lover’s Complaint

An almost
identical cryptogram is revealed in Shakespeare’s poem A Lover’s
that accompanied the Sonnets in their first
edition. The validity of Kit’s second message is also demonstrated.



RevenantAn examination
of the prologue to Marlowe’s play The Jew of Malta gives
broad hints as to Marlowe’s doings in the aftermath of his ‘murder’.
This prologue has cabalistic features making it extremely personal
to Christopher Marlowe; thus identifying him with the speaker Machevill,
who scoffs at rumours of his own death.
