9780060136918 Dust jacket notes: "'A. L. Rowse, our wittiest and most brilliant historian of the Elizabethan Renaissance, has given us our first totally convincing portrait of Shakespeare the Man. What a remarkable coup, to discover the identity of the Dark Lady of the Sonnets, and to bring the whole age to life, with Shakespeare at its very center, in a vibrant, life-sized portrait the reader can never forget.' -Irving Stone This discovery not only corroborates and completes the previous findings of the leading historian of the Elizabethan Age, but also solves the greatest mystery in literature. Mr. Rowse has now been able to write the first three-dimensional biography of Shakespeare, revealing him fully in his personal life at the crucial period of the sonnets, and placing him in the proper perspective of the Elizabethan theater."
