Synopsis: In this paper I bring together an array of evidence, much of it new, to show that the satirical author, Thomas Nashe, had a much closer and more vitriolic relationship with Henry Wriothesley and, by extension, William Shakespeare than has previously been realized. The discovery sheds more light on the relationship of the third earl of Southampton with Shakespeare and strengthens the probability of a significant element of biography within Shakespeare's Sonnets.
