The boon companion of those laughing rogues, Raleigh and Drake... The battler against court cabals, Oxford knew the lash of Elizabeths tart tongue as well as her favor, the grim dungeons of the Tower as well as the gaudy, bawdy palaces. A fighting man, in a tournament with lances, a tavern brawl or a desperate stand against the formidable Spanish Armada... A poet who touched glory to the English tongue and spirit with his quill, he hobnobbed with and inspired a strolling player named Will Shakespeare... A man of storm and passion for the flighty Anne, the alluring, unknowable Nan, the dainty lady-in-waiting, Eliza. Here is a man among men. Here is a time of gold and glitter, sham and greatness, re-created in all its splendor.A Lancer Book * Complete and Unabridgedcover printed in the U.S.A.
