Sinopsis: In this remarkable true life story, Shakespeare, man and genius, comes gloriously to life. For the first time we see him as he really was - a courageous and loveable man who suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, and whose life was as great a drama as any play he wrote. This is the most important research on Shakespeare's Sonnets ever published. It will open the floodgates for a great Shakespearean debate engendering new understanding and fresh dramatic interpretation. A spellbinding and compelling read for all who love Shakespeare.
Synopsis: This volume begins from the premise that no one would have gone to the trouble of publishing a book of autobiographical poems with a heavily cryptic dedication to a mysterious "Mr W.H." unless there had been something very important to hide. Determined to discover the hidden truth about William Shakespeare's authorship of the "Sonnets", this book uncovers a carefully kept 400-year-old secret. The story that the 154 autobiographical sonnets reflect, the book argues, is the life and tragedy of Chistopher Marlowe, whereas they do not any point touch the life of William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon. A.D. Wraight is the author of "Shakespeare's Sonnets".
