ALL 154 SONNETS SET FORTH WITHIN HISTORICAL CONTEXT
Now, for the first time, Shakespeare's Sonnets are set forth within the context of contemporary Elizabethan history -- focused primarily on the 1601-1603 time period following the Essex Rebellion, which had been aimed at removing Robert Cecil from his power behind the throne of Queen Elizabeth I of England.
THE MONUMENT demonstrates how the Sonnets contain a dramatic personal and political story leading to the death of Queen Elizabeth I of England and the end of her Tudor Rose dynasty. Now each 14-line verse springs to life with new clarity, meaning and emotional content.
This is Shakespeare's own drama -- the truth he wanted the world to know about his life. As Hamlet pleaded with his friend:
Horatio, I am dead;
Thou liv'st. Report me and my cause aright
To the unsatisfied...
O good Horatio, what a wounded name!
Things standing thus unknown shall live behind me!
If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart,
Absent thee from felicity awhile,
And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain
To tell my story...
