In the second title Vyvyan sets out ‘to uncover a little of the meaning that the heroine, as a love symbol, has in Shakespeare’, particularly in Love’s Labour’s Lost, The Two Gentlemen of Verona and Romeo and Juliet. Again he reveals a consistent structure to the
plays and explains how Shakespeare used the medieval allegory of love, The Romance of the Rose, to veil his ideas at a time of major religious intolerance.

‘... more perceptive and convincing than a great deal that has ever been writ ten on the subject ... close and attentive scholarship  ... shrewd and ingenious observations.’                                    
A.L.Rowse,  Daily Telegraph
