"Let me imagine, since facts are so hard to come by, what would have happened had Shakespeare had a wonderfully gifted sister, called Judith, let us say." -Virginia Woolf.

In a patriarchal, politically-charged, and deeply divided nation, she pursues work as a poet and discovers the pleasures and pitfalls of passing as the bard himself.
