Quote:

Elizabethan Age, or Elizabethan Era, was a period of English history during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I , from 1558 to 1603. Elizabeth was a strong ruler who gained the loyalty and admiration of her subjects. The Elizabethan Age is sometimes called the Golden Age , because it was a time of great achievement in England .

Elizabeth was born in 1533. She was the daughter of King Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn . Elizabeth became queen in 1558. During Elizabeth’s reign, she achieved a religious settlement that established a moderately Protestant Church of England as the country’s national church. She also long avoided war with Europe's leading Roman Catholic nations.

In 1588, the English navy defeated the powerful Spanish Armada , a fleet of armed ships that tried to invade England. English merchants and sailors then challenged the Spanish with greater confidence around the world. England's economy prospered during the Elizabethan Age.

Under Elizabeth, England advanced in many areas. Merchants formed a great trading company, the East India Company , in 1600. Sir Francis Drake , Sir Walter Raleigh , and other English adventurers explored the Caribbean region and the coasts of North and South America. English literature flowered during the Elizabethan Age, with the work of such writers as Francis Bacon , Ben Jonson , Christopher Marlowe , Edmund Spenser , and William Shakespeare . Notable composers from the period included Thomas Tallis and William Byrd .

Popular pleasures during the Elizabethan Age included archery, bowls (similar to bowling), and dancing. People liked music, and wealthy people were expected to play musical instruments on social occasions. The English also enjoyed dressing up for masques , pageants , and plays at Christmas and other special times. Elizabeth’s court became a center for musicians, scholars, and writers.

Not everyone prospered during the Elizabethan Age. Strict rules regulated clothing, land ownership, marriage, and religion. In the latter half of Elizabeth’s reign, she actively persecuted Catholics. Some radical forms of Protestantism also were not tolerated. A number of people were executed for activity opposing the established church. By law, such action could be regarded as treason. In 1587, Elizabeth executed her cousin Mary Stuart , the former Catholic queen of Scotland . Mary had been the willing focus of several Catholic plots against Elizabeth.

An Irish rebellion and a worsening economy darkened the final years of Elizabeth’s reign. The Elizabethan Age ended with Elizabeth’s death in 1603. Elizabeth was succeeded by James VI, the Protestant son of Mary Stuart.

Quote:

George (1525?-1577), was an Elizabethan author who pioneered in many literary forms. His best-known play, Supposes (1566), was based on I Suppositi (1509) by Ludovico Ariosto, and was the first English adaptation of Italian comedy. Supposes was also the first English prose comedy, and brought the classical comedy of romance, disguise, and mistaken identity to English drama. Shakespeare used Supposes in the plot of The Taming of the Shrew. Gascoigne's poems influenced the work of Edmund Spenser.

Gascoigne's The Adventures of Master F. J. (1573) was one of the forerunners of the novel. He also produced courtly entertainments. The most ambitious was The Princely Pleasures at Kenilworth Castle, with texts by Gascoigne and others. It was performed before Queen Elizabeth I in 1575. Gascoigne was born in Bedfordshire. He died on Oct. 7, 1577.

Paraphrase:

Elizabeth was queen 6 years before shakespeare was born. Her father was Henry VIII he lived a long lawful life. Elizabeth was one of the most powerful years and one of the most exillerating eras.

Quote:

Dekker, Thomas (1572?-1632?), brought to Elizabethan popular literature a fresh emphasis on the life of his day. Dekker's best-known play is The Shoemaker's Holiday (1599). It is a zestful picture of Elizabethan life that combines patriotism and romance with a favorable portrayal of the rising merchant and artisan classes. Dekker's other plays include the romance Old Fortunatus (1599) and the comedy The Honest Whore (1604-1605).

Dekker wrote many dramas and pamphlets. Between 1598 and 1602 alone, he wrote all or part of over 40 plays, most of them now lost. Yet he usually had no money and apparently spent several years in prison for debt. From about 1604, Dekker turned increasingly to writing popular pamphlets, mainly satires of the London underworld. The Gull's Hornbook (1609) is a lively record of London life of the time

Paraphrase:

Elizabethan era was one of the most popular eras.It was filled with romance, portrayal, and more. dekker was a writer. he wrote stories about the things that were happening and why. Dekker has written many dramas between 1598 and 1602. His stories haave been underground because he has spent many years in prison.

Quote:

Queen Mary I, the monarch of England and Ireland since 1553, dies and is succeeded by her 25-year-old half-sister, Elizabeth.

The two half-sisters, both daughters of King Henry VIII, had a stormy relationship during Mary’s five-year reign. Mary, who was brought up as a Catholic, enacted pro-Catholic legislation and made efforts to restore the pope to supremacy in England. A Protestant rebellion ensued, and Queen Mary imprisoned Elizabeth, a Protestant, in the Tower of London on suspicion of complicity. After Mary’s death, Elizabeth survived several Catholic plots against her; though her ascension was greeted with approval by most of England’s lords, who were largely Protestant and hoped for greater religious tolerance under a Protestant queen. Under the early guidance of Secretary of State Sir William Cecil, Elizabeth repealed Mary’s pro-Catholic legislation, established a permanent Protestant Church of England, and encouraged the Calvinist reformers in Scotland.

In foreign affairs, Elizabeth practiced a policy of strengthening England’s Protestant allies and dividing her foes. Elizabeth was opposed by the pope, who refused to recognize her legitimacy, and by Spain, a Catholic nation that was at the height of its power. In 1588, English-Spanish rivalry led to an abortive Spanish invasion of England in which the Spanish Armada, the greatest naval force in the world at the time, was destroyed by storms and a determined English navy.

With increasing English domination at sea, Elizabeth encouraged voyages of discovery, such as Sir Francis Drake’s circumnavigation of the world and Sir Walter Raleigh’s expeditions to the North American coast.

The long reign of Elizabeth, who became known as the “Virgin Queen” for her reluctance to endanger her authority through marriage, coincided with the flowering of the English Renaissance, associated with such renowned authors as William Shakespeare. By her death in 1603, England had become a major world power in every respect, and Queen Elizabeth I passed into history as one of England’s greatest monarchs.

Paraphrase:

Queen Mary was a catholic and was trying to protest against any oter religin. she was on suspicion of complicity. after marys death Queen Elizabeth was elected queen and she has made the navy stronger. The navy won the spanish

Quote:

Thomas (1574?-1641), was a popular and productive English playwright of the Elizabethan and Jacobean ages. He claimed he wrote all or part of 220 plays, of which perhaps 23 survive. Heywood's most enduring drama is A Woman Killed with Kindness (1603). This tragedy is almost unique in Elizabethan drama because the characters in the play are not of high rank, and the central situation is wholly domestic and free from political overtones. The play thus anticipates the direction that serious drama took in the later 1800's in the domestic plays of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen.

Heywood's other plays include Edward IV (1599), The Fair Maid of the West (1610?), The English Traveller (1627), and adaptations of classical myths. Heywood also produced translations and pamphlets. His most important pamphlet was An Apology for Actors (1612). The pamphlet was a reply to Puritan attacks on the theater. Heywood was born in Lincolnshire. He attended Cambridge University and served as an actor and playwright for many theatrical companies. He died on Aug. 16, 1641

Paraphrase:

Thomas was supposeavly a popular writer. he claims that he wrote or wrote part of 220 plays. he wrote a play about elizabethan era. he has THE FAIR MADE OF THE WEST[1610] and more.
