The Dark Side of Shakespeare: An Iron-Fisted Romantic in England's Most Perilous Times
iUniverse, 2002 - 620 من الصفحات
"Plunging into the complexities of Elizabethan history, Hess raises a host of provocative questions about Shakespeare's identity and the controversial character of the 17th earl of Oxford, the leading candidate for authorship honors. Wide reading informs his answers, and he doesn't shy from proposing linkages, motivations and ingenious theories to make sense of the historical records and answer the many questions about Oxford's life. His work on Don Juan of Austria may well prove to have opened a new perspective on that military leader's connection to Shakespeare."
-Richard F. Whalen, author, Shakespeare: Who Was He?"The Dark Side of Shakespeare is an original and stimulating book that takes the authorship debate in unexpected new directions. Even those who reject its conclusions will find plenty to think about."
-Joseph Sobran, author, "Alias Shakespeare"
