With the conspiracies growing by the day, John Shakespeare is living a rather quiet life. That all goes up in flames when he receives a summons from Robert Cecil. Cecil is a young statesman who must be taken seriously. In his career, he has been able to dominate within the structure of the Queen’s reign. Now he is demanding that Shakespeare enter the service of the government and the queen once more. Whether or not Shakespeare wishes to do so is irrelevant; he must serve his country. Especially since these are times of war and strife with great uncertainty. A few years after he left school, in late 1582, William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway. She was already expecting their first-born child, Susanna, which was a fairly common situation at the time. When they married, Anne was 26 and William was 18. Anne grew up just outside Stratford in the village of Shottery. After marrying, she spent the rest of her life in Stratford. Crystal, David (2001). The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language.

John Shakespeare is an investigator for Walsingham, charged with keeping Sir Francis Drake from being assassinated and rooting out any Catholic plots against the queen. Fellow investigator and rival Topcliffe always seems to be just ahead of Shakespeare in the investigation, using his brutal methods to get the answers he wants from the victims and perpetrators.Incluye personajes numerosos que atrapan la esencia de las distintas facciones que entraron en juego en estos muy históricos y reales acontecimientos. Ha sido fascinante aprender sobre el revolucionario, sangriento y doloroso cisma religioso que se vivió en Inglaterra en aquella época. Qué triste para tanta gente ver cómo su religión cambiaba, cómo se convertía en herejía lo que una vez les había asegurado el cielo. En ese sentido, el trabajo del autor ha sido efectivo y encomiable, pues el misterio, la atmósfera frustrante y peligrosa, el personaje de John y la salvaje disputa religiosa son pilares fundamentales de esta novela y están documentados y desarrollados con gran acierto. Coming from a former British national newspaper journalist, Rory Clements (author of the Tom Wilde series), the John Shakespeare thrillers are historical crime novels. Rowse, A.L. (1963).

Archived from the original on 3 April 2016 . Retrieved 2 April 2016. William Shakespeare ( bapt. Tooltip baptised 26 [a] April 1564 – 23 April 1616) [b] was an English playwright, poet and actor. He is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. [3] [4] [5] He is often called England's national poet and the " Bard of Avon" (or simply "the Bard"). His extant works, including collaborations, consist of some 39 plays, 154 sonnets, three long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. [6] Shakespeare remains arguably the most influential writer in the English language, and his works continue to be studied and reinterpreted. Yet it wasn't until the odd Mother Davis bit that I took this book out of 5-star contention. I'm not even sure what to say about that strange episode. There were two things that jumped out at me from the start. First: I felt the characters were a bit one dimensional and typical, as in, the spunky girl willing to state her mind no matter what or the bad guys with no redeeming attributes or the hero just trying to do everything honourably. Second: the writing was so full of clichés it felt like I was reading a newspaper article not a book.Inscribed in Latin on his funerary monument: AETATIS 53 DIE 23 APR (In his 53rd year he died 23 April).

Very important to note is the fact that Mary, the Catholic Queen of Scots, who's incarcerated for treason at Fotheringhay Castle to be tried and executed there, and she will be seen later on as a kind of "Martyr" for the Catholics against the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I. Among the last plays that Shakespeare worked on was The Two Noble Kinsmen, which he wrote with a frequent collaborator, John Fletcher, most likely in 1613. He died on April 23, 1616—the traditional date of his birthday, though his precise birthdate is unknown. We also do not know the cause of his death. His brother-in-law had died a week earlier, which could imply infectious disease, but Shakespeare’s health may have had a longer decline. William and Anne also had twins, Judith and Hamnet, who were baptized on February 2, 1585. Hamnet died at age 11 and a half. Judith married Thomas Quiney in 1616, and the couple had three sons: Shakespeare Quiney, who died in infancy, and Richard and Thomas, who both died in 1639 within a month of each other. Since neither of the boys married, there is no possibility of any legitimate descendants from Shakespeare’s line. Bowers, Fredson (1955). On Editing Shakespeare and the Elizabethan Dramatists. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press. OCLC 2993883. Revenger– 1592. England is at war with Spain, and Queen Elizabeth’s court is torn apart by brutal rivalries among ambitious young courtiers. The inimitable investigator John Shakespeare is dragged from retirement to work for the Earl of Essex, the queen’s favorite. His mission is to unravel the mystery behind the doomed Roanoke colony in North America, but instead, he uncovers a plot to kill the aging queen.
