Excellent introduction to Clare Asquith and her book: “Shakespeare and the Resistance.“ I have now read it and recommend it highly.
I would like to recommend to Lady Asquith the following article which identifies the painting that is the source of the Hecuba passages in Lucrece.
Is there someway you can pass this reference on to Lady Asquith?
Hello Francis! We were delighted to work with Lady Asquith to promote her book on the show, and to have her share from her research about the Essex Rebellion. I am so happy to know you enjoyed her episode, and that you subsequently read her book! Unfortunately, I am not able to pass along your information directly, but I would encourage you to try and connect with her at one of her many book promotional events where she is available in person. Those events often have a Q/A time at the end of a presentation where asking her about this article might fit. Thank you for listening!
