Quote:

"According to the custom at that time, infants were baptized about three days after their birth. Therefore, the generally accepted date for Shakespeare’s birth is April 23"(Lander).

My Ideas:

This shows Shakespeare was born on April 23. This also shows Shakespeare was baptized, so their parents were religious.

entertainment for Elizabeth

Source:

Shakespeare’s Professional Career . SALEM PRESS .

Quote:

"The Lord Chamberlain was responsible for providing entertainment for Elizabeth. It is not surprising that his own company acted before her eighteen times during these years, more than any other troupe"(Rosenblum).

My Ideas:

This shows Shakespeare's company was so popular, they entertained Queen Elizabeth 18 times. This quote also shows the company performed for the queen more than any other troupe.

His Last Years

Source:

William Shakespeare." <i>Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia, 6Th Edition</i> (2016): 1-4. <i>History Reference Center</i>. Web. 18 Nov. 2016.

Quote:

"During his last eight years, Shakespeare was the sole author of only three plays— Cymbeline, The Tempest, and The Winter’s Tale... some scholars argued that The Tempest, written about 1610, was Shakespeare’s last play. However, in 1612 and 1613, Shakespeare worked closely with Fletcher, who replaced him as the chief dramatist for the King’s Men, on Cardenio (now lost), King Henry VIII, and Two Noble Kinsmen "(William Shakespeare).

My Ideas:

This quote shows Shakespeare was the main author of 3 more plays in the last 8 years of his life. This quote also shows Shakespeare worked with Fletcher in order to make more plays in 1612 and 1613.

No women allowed

Quote:

"...women were not allowed to act on the stage. Boys or men played all the women’s parts"("Education").

My Ideas:

This shows men played the women's parts in plays. This also shows people thought women couldn't be actors in plays.

Religious Theories

Quote:

"...he (or whoever wrote these plays) seems to very much believe in the hierarchical view of the world the Elizabethans had-the great chain of being, in which everybody has a place that's determined by God"(Brustein, Robert).

My Ideas:

This shows shakespeare and whoever else that wrote the plays, believes everyone in the world has a place that would be determined by God. This quote also shows Shakespeare and other people who wrote the plays are religious.

Shakespeare's "Golden Age"

Source:

Lander, Jesse M. "Shakespeare, William." <i>World Book Advanced</i>. World Book, 2016. Web. 17 Nov. 2016.

Quote:

"From 1594 to 1608, he was fully involved in the London theater world... he wrote an average of almost two plays a year for his company. During much of this period, Shakespeare ranked as London’s most popular playwright, based on the number of times his plays were performed and published"(Lander, Jesse M.).

My Ideas:

This quote shows from 1594-1608, he made almost two plays a year for his company. This also shows he was ranked London's most popular playwright during that time.

the King's Men

Shakespeare’s Professional Career . SALEM PRESS .

Quote:

"When James I came to the throne, he converted the Lord Chamberlain’s Men into the King’s Men, thus assuring Shakespeare’s company powerful protection and plentiful court performances that could be rewarded richly"(Shakespeare).

My Ideas:

This quote shows how the Lord Chamberlain's Men changed into the King's Men. This also shows shakespeare's company would also be protected and would preform for the court.

The Lord Chamberlain's Men

Source:

Lander, Jesse M. "Shakespeare, William." <i>World Book Advanced</i>. World Book, 2016. Web. 17 Nov. 2016.

Quote:

"The Lord Chamberlain’s Men were one of the most popular companies in London. In large part because of Shakespeare’s talents, they would go on to become the dominant company in England during the late 1500’s and early 1600’s"(Lander, Jesse M.).

My Ideas:

This shows because of Shakespeare's talent, the Lord Chamberlain's Men would surpass all other companies. This also shows during the 1500's and 1600's, Shakespeare and his company would be the most dominant company in England
