    Amelia Bassano (1569-1645) came from a family of court musicians to Elizabeth I and became mistress to Lord Hunsdon, the courtier in charge of the theatre. Later, she emerged as Christopher Marlowe's lover and collaborator, the 'dark lady' of Shakespeare's sonnets and a published poet in her own right. Hudson's controversial and well-researched book shows that Amelia Bessano was in all the right places and had all the right knowledge, skills and contacts to have produced the Shakepearean canon.
