Product description

Shall I compare thee to a summeras daya]a Shakespeare tells Mary Browne Wriothesley early in their relationship. Years later, he assured her, aYou are my rose, you are my all.a But William Shakespeare had a wife and children. In spite of his new status as gentleman, there was never a future for their relationship. Suspecting his mistress of unfaithfulness, he lashed out at her, aAm I to live then as an unsuspecting husband supposing thou art true?a When she did remarry, Shakespeare informed her that the only feeling he ever held for her was that of lust. That although he had sworn her fair and thought her bright, she was aas black as hell as dark as night.a
