The lunatic the lover and the poet book
The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet by Myrlin A HermesGetting the inside scoop on William Shakespeare has gone beyond a cottage industry: It's become a full-blown urban renewal project. Who was this dude? Who really wrote the plays and sonnets? Was the Bard of Avon, wife-shirking son of a glove maker from some bumpkin town in the provinces, nothing but a front man, a willing and handy actor to play the role of theatrical genius while some aristocratic dandy pulled the strings from offstage? This has become more than a literary parlor game. Academic reputations are on the line. The funny thing is, it really doesn't matter.

A Divinity scholar at Wittenberg University, Horatio prides himself on his ability to argue both sides of any intellectual debate but is himself a skeptic, never fully believing in any philosophy. That is, until he meets the outrageous, provocative, and flamboyantly beautiful Prince of Denmark, who teaches him more about both Earth and Heaven than any of his books. But Hamlet is also irrationally haunted by intimations of a tragic destiny he believes is preordained. When a freelance translation job turns into a full-scale theatrical production, Horatio arranges for the theater-loving prince to act in the play-disguised as the heroine! This attracts the attention of Horatio's patroness, the dark and manipulative Lady Adriana. A voracious and astute reader of both books and people, she performs her own seductions to test whether the "platonic true-love" described in his poems is truly so platonic.
