Summary A. L. Rowse, an extremely eminent student of Elizabethan history and of Shakespeare, a gentleman and a scholar, has devoted this book to a truly exciting thesis: he claims that he figured out all the "mysteries" of Shakespeare's sonnets, published the results to the world, and was rewarded with horrified silence from the "Shakespeare Establishment."
