Description: Shakespeare's Dark Lady - a novel by Ian Wilson
Author Dr Ian Wilson has come up with a startling theory in Shakespeare's Dark Lady, a novel about the love-life of a fictional Shakespeare scholar, Amelia Hungerford. Through Amelia's story, Ian Wilson demonstrates that the Dark Lady was none other than Penelope Rich - the most powerful courtesan of her day and the first cousin of Queen Elizabeth I. She was born Penelope Devereux around 1563, the daughter of the first Earl of Essex. By her marriage to Lord Robert Rich in 1581 she became Penelope Rich and acquired a surname which would become a favourite pun for many poets. As Stella in Sir Philip Sidney's Astrophel and Stella sonnets, her name has already survived as more than just a literary footnote.
