My Dark Lady : Shakespeare's Lost Play

Description

The year: 1580. The scene: Queen Elizabeth's glittering Court. Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, has just lost his heart to the Queen's newest maid of honor. Their forbidden love inspires him to compose 25 sonnets and a 5-hour play about his Dark Lady. Yet, this tempestuous love story is ripped from history's pages, creating literature's greatest mystery. Told in her own words, the Dark Lady's stunning story climaxes with a surprisingly satisfying solution to the authorship riddle. "My Dark Lady: Shakespeare's Lost Play" A gloriously intoxicating blend of intellectual thriller, literary fireworks and compelling storytelling. Oscar-winning director, Lynne Littman, describes this powerful, fast-paced novel as "Shakespeare in Love" meets "Braveheart" with a generous sprinkling of "Amadeus" and "Anonymous."
