Prospero's Daughter, Paperback / softback Book

Prospero's Daughter Paperback / softback


Shakespeare's mother is a Tudor. His brother lives at St Albans. He spells his name with the "i" of Miranda. She complains to her father that he has not told her of her origins.

Prospero replies in code that they are the same person.

His grandson owns land near Stratford, in Northamptonshire.

Confused? So is Shakespeare. He suggests asking a prince who he is, that he is himself a prince, princeps in Latin, his epitaph.

He eats off the same plate as Francis Bacon and is on intimate terms with Lord Burghley - Edward de Vere's father-in-law.

He is neither of them. He is the third man in Gerard's Herbal.
