The author is moved by this fact to uncover signs of a secret but continued conversation among the three men about the religic is politics of their time. He reads the evidence, with plausible speculation, out of the literary and biographical remains of the conversants, discovering that Shakespeares writing is influenced in a major way by Southwells--especially when the poet/playwright takes up in his work issues of special concern to the earl.

Dr. Klause raises and answers questions that are sometimes fiercely contested in current debates about Shakespeares religious allegiances. He charts a reasonable course between extreme denial (An Olympian Shakespeare had no interest at all in the religious conflicts of his day) and extreme affirmation (A canny and elusive Shakespeare hid his strongly held and well defined sectarian beliefs from a persecuting establishment that would have crushed conspicuous dissent).

In the process of doing so, he offers close, extended, and original readings of works written by Shakespeare over a decade. John Klause is Professor of English at Hofstra University.
