Overview

Robin Williams' premise that a woman may have written the works attributed to William Shakespeare is NOT based on analysis of the female characters in the plays or on any perceived feminine attributes. Rather, she grounds her provocative study on documented evidence regarding Mary Sidney, a woman who developed the most important literary circle in English history, whose mission in life was to create great works in the English language, and who was unable to put her name on work written for the public theater.

The intent of this book is to provide enough documented evidence to open the inquiry into this intriguing-and entirely plausible-possibility. She accomplishes this by, on the one hand, debunking longstanding assumptions about the author of these works and, on the other hand, providing overwhelming documented evidence connecting Mary Sidney to the Shakespearean canon.
