Nell Gwyn : mistress to a king by Charles Beauclerk( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Pretty Nelly', as Samuel Pepys called her in his diary, was famously spotted selling oranges in the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The job was already an improvement for a girl who'd grown up in a brothel and sold oysters on the street. Her wit and charm brought her to the attention of one of the theatre's leading actors, Charles Hart, and under his patronage she took to the stage. Through a series of sparkling performances she soon established herself as the greatest comedienne of her day, feted by audiences and befriended by the great dramatists of the age, such as Aphra Behn and Dryden, both of whom wrote parts specifically for her
Shakespeare's lost kingdom : the true history of Shakespeare and Elizabeth by Charles Beauclerk( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beauclerk has spent more than two decades researching the authorship question, and he convincingly argues that if the plays and poems of "Shakespeare" were discovered today, we would see them for what they are--shocking political works written by a court insider, someone whose status and anonymity shielded him from repression in an unstable time of armada and reformation. But the author's unique status and identity were swept under the rug after his death. The official history--of an uneducated Stratfordian merchant writing in obscurity and of a virginal queen married to her country--dominated for centuries. "Shakespeare's Lost Kingdom" delves deep into the conflicts and personalities of Elizabethan England, as well as into the plays themselves, to tell the true story of the "Soul of the Age."
