About this show

A. L. Rowse shocked the world when he revealed the identity of the Dark Lady of Shakespeare's sonnets. Born to a semi-literate Cornish clay worker, Rowse fought his way up the academic ladder, becoming an esteemed historian at Oxford. Although he knew he would always be an outsider by birth, politics, and sexual orientation, he expected his brilliance and creativity would earn him national recognition as the man who solved the problems of the Sonnets. Yet, his discoveries brought him nothing but turmoil and controversy.
