The second of two true investigations.
The Message in the Marble Since its erection in 174 1, the monument to
William Shakespeare in Westminster Abbey has kept a little-known secret in Poets' Corner. Lines from The Tempest, inscribed on its marble scroll, were seemingly deliberately misspelt, misquoted and rearranged. Why? In the monument's
250th year, it's time to ask who butchered the Bard.
