Sweet Swan of Avon: Did a Woman Write Shakespeare? (One-Off) by Robin P Williams
Sweet Swan of Avon: Did a Woman Write Shakespeare? (One-Off)

Lili318, June 7, 2006

I've just finished reading "Sweet Swan of Avon" about Mary Sidney and the Shakespeare authorship question. This is a terrific book! The combination of excellent scholarship and fresh viewpoints make this book a winner. And it is really fun to read.
Now, for the person who didn't like the book who didn't read the book: sorry, you evidently do not even understand the sonnets (which perhaps you haven't read, either?) and "Taming of the Shrew" is obviously written by a woman. Please, don't be afraid to read "Sweet Swan of Avon" -- it's easy enough for anyone to understand.
