Emilia archiveWhen history favours only one sex we are left to piece together what we know and imagine what we don't. Emilia Bassano was born into a musical family in 1569. She went on to become a published poet and a member of the court. However, what little we know about her has become bound up with the possibility that she was Shakespeare's ?Dark Lady of the Sonnets.' This legacy has erased her own achievements in favour of those of a man she may or may not have known. For the first time, the focus will be on this brilliant woman who managed to outlive all the men the history books tethered her to. Introducing to the world: Emilia! She's going to make you remember her name.
