The theory regarding Queen Elizabeth I is not new, and Shakespeare's
Bi-sexuality is already commonplace. What's new, then.

Could you, yes, please, give the URL of the article you referred to?
Thank you.

Sounds like Dr Peter McDonald reasoned thus:

"Since the youth is a male, and we do not want any implication of
homosexuality, then it follows the writer must be a female, and who
better to help see my book than Bess herself.  All I have to do now is
interpret the sonnets in some fashion to make it all work out, and then
call my publisher."

My sentiment would be to say: "Sorry, Dr. McDonald you've missed it I am
afraid."

Regards to all,
Ira Zinman
