Excerpt from Shakespeare's Hamlet
Particularly was this true in connection with the drama. Plays founded (for the most part) on the Bible had been popular all over England for centuries. Then, as the Latin comedies and tragedies - especially those of Plautus and Seneca - were more and more studied in the schools, and as the inﬂuence of the Renaissance in Italy and France had Spread to England, the field had widened. And just at the time when Shakespeare arrived in Lotﬂ' a group of young university men were giving the drama a fresh impetus and enlarging still further its scope. Plays of all sorts were being written, in response to the varying popular demand; delicate court comedies, like John Lyly's; plays that experimented in many fields, like those Of Peele and Greene; crude but powerful tragedies, like Kyd's; dramas like -marlowe's, that expressed, in the new medium of blank verse, the boundless aspirations of the time; plays that dealt with history, mythology, fairy lore, adventure, crime - everything was grist that came to the playwrights' mill, and the demand for more plays was steadily growing.
