An alternative new version of all 154 Shakespeare’s sonnets translation is presented in the first part of the book.
Each sonnet’s Latin script had been transliterated into Cyrillics. Such method allowed to arrange letters into an assumed 155th sonnet. A hypothesis proposed is that a certain arrangement of transliterated Cyrillic letters creates an anagram.
Second part of the book has a fictional narrative of the historical connections between figures of the Elizabethan Era - English aristocracy, politicians, diplomats, poets, playwrights and spies within influences of the “Muscovy Trading Company” system. The role of Cyrillics in Shakespeare’s Sonnets is determined as a way of coding a certain information. Some decoding techniques are suggested which can be applied to the Sonnets dedication page as well.
