Synopsis

MEET THE REAL AEMILIA BASSANO LANYER: ENGLAND'S FIRST FEMALE POET…AND THE WOMAN WHO IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN THE DARK LADY OF SHAKESPEARE'S SONNETS.

The real Aemilia Basano Lanyer was Renaissance woman, centuries ahead of her time. England's first professionally-published female poet, she is also suspected to have inspired the poetry of one our greatest and most beloved writers, William Shakespeare—and she continues to inspire writers to this day.

With Dark Aemilia, Sally O'Reilly gives us a richly imagined novel of this mysterious, and nearly forgotten, woman, and now, she invites us to discover Ameilia Lanyer first-hand. A collection of Shakespeare's famed "Dark Lady" sonnets; fascinating and hard-to-find historical details; and Aemilia's own provocative poetry, as well as exclusive excerpts from the novel; Shakespeare's Dark Lady is a must-read for poetry lovers and the ideal companion to Sally O'Reilly's stunning debut—a novel "filled with all the passion, drama, and magic of Elizabethan England" (Paula Brackston, New York Times bestselling author of The Witch's Daughter and The Midnight Witch).
