Emilia Bassano has 4 moves opposed to her: she is negative, attractive, woman, and clever in Elizabethan England. To make concerns worse, she comes from a relatives of mystery Jews. whilst she is raped as undefined, she is aware she most likely won't be able to make an outstanding marriage, so she turns into the mistress of a miles older nobleman. in this time she falls in love with poet/player William Shakespeare, and so they have a short, passionate relationship—but whilst the plague involves England, the nobleman abandons her, leaving her pregnant and with no monetary safeguard.

In the years that keep on with, Emilia is pressured to make a couple of tricky judgements in her efforts to outlive, and never them all prove good for her. yet finally, regardless of the deprived place she used to be born to, she succeeds in pursuing her goals of turning into a writer—and even publishes a publication of poetry in 1611 that makes a shockingly glossy argument for women’s equality.
