A certain B.Griffin wrote a series of 62 poems entitled “Fidessa, more chaste than kinde, London”, 1596./ (“little volume of Sonnets”). Initially there is a dedication “To the Reader” entitled “To the gentlemen of the Inns of Court”, from which it can be inferred that Griffin himself had some sort of relations to the Inns of Court, but no trace of him has ever been found in the registers.
Of an English poet B.Griffin virtually nothing is known up to now beyond a single "poetic masterwork", the sonnets of "Fidessa" (s.Faksimile title 1596.)
There are highly conspicious inconsistencies, which have never be explained adequately. Some examples:
1.) Why there exist virtually no biographic traces of B. Griffin in England?
2.) Is it reasonable to think that such a highly gifted poet did write only a singular literary work?
3.) Why "Fidessa" is seen by high ranking Shakspeare experts (Prof.W.Koppenfels, personal communication) as "Amatory-Sonnets" written by "third-class", minor Elisa-bethan poets ?
4.) Why no literary expert ever tried or succeeded to assign the contextual contents of "Fidessa" to a specific contem-porous author and his situation?
5.) Is it reasonable to think that the poet was able to write his first literary work ("first fruite of any my writings") already at the highest level of poetic artistry?
6.) How can it be that Sonnet 3 of Fidessa beginning "Venus and young Adonis sitting by her" also appeares as Shakespere's Sonnet in The "Passionate Pilgrim", 1599?
7.) What my have been the motiv of Shakespeare (whoever the author was!) to significantly alter the lines 9-13 of Griffins Fidessa (1596) in "The Passionate Pilgrime" (1599)
8.) Why Shakespeare can be clearly identified as the author of "The Passionate Pilgrime" on the title page(s.Faksimile) but other clearly identified authors such as B.Griffin, C.Marlowe or R.Barnfield are not mentioned?
The at present most plausible explanation for the total failure of the "Academic Shakespeare Expertise" to search for a consistent theory of these bizarre "Fidessa" observa-tions lies in the fact that the most logical thesis was rejected from the beginning: The Marlowe / alias Shakespeare Thesis : a covert "false flag" operation of the English Crown and State helped to feign Christopher Marlowe's death for life-saving reasons.-During his concealed "second live" he accepted to write under a multiplicity of pseudonyms / pennames such as Griffin, Barnfield , Shake-speare!)

A coherent interpretation of the sonnets "Fidessa" will not be possible as long as the Marlowe / alias Shakespeare Theory is not considered
