It is perhaps the greatest story never told: the truth behind the
most enduring works of English literature. Who was the man behind
Hamlet, King Lear, and the sonnets? In Shakespeare’s Lost
Kingdom, critically acclaimed historian Charles Beauclerk pulls
off an enchanting feat, humanizing the bard who for centuries has
remained beyond our grasp. Beauclerk has spent more than two
decades researching the authorship question, and he convincingly
argues that if the plays and poems of “Shake-speare” were
discovered today, we would see them for what they are—shocking
political works written by a court insider, someone whose status
and anonymity shielded him from repression in an unstable time of
armada and reformation. But the author’s unique status and
identity were swept under the rug after his death. The official
history—of an uneducated Stratfordian merchant writing in
obscurity and of a virginal queen married to her
country—dominated for centuries. Shakespeare’s Lost Kingdom
delves deep into the conflicts and personalities of Elizabethan
England, as well as into the plays themselves, to tell the true
story of the “Soul of the Age.” You’ll never look at Shakespeare
the same way again.
