He was baptized April 26, 1564. His Contribution to the renaissance was that he created a new style of play writing because he mixed both tragedy and comedy into one, which in his times was a big deal because way back then comedies were comedies and tragedies were tragedies,they were never mixed. He wrote plays such as, Midsummer's Night Dream in 1600, Romeo and Juliet in 1597, Hamlet in 1603, Twelfth Night in 1623, Mac Beth in 1623, etc.
He was baptized on February 26, 1564. He was the main playwright to use tragedy. He is known to pave the way for Shakespeare. He would not only write plays but he would also write poems. Plays Dido, Queen of Carthage, Tamburlaine the Great, Parts One and Two, The Jew of Malta, Doctor Faustus, Edward II, and The Massacre at Paris.

He was born on June 11, 1572. He is usually recognized as the 2nd most famous English playwright behind Shakespeare. He first perused acting but failed, so he decided to start writing the plays. His plays were mostly comedies. Some of his most famous work include
A Tale of a Tub
, Eastward
, and
The Poetaster
-Shakespeare's influence was one of the main events to happen during the renaissance. He did something that at that time people thought was foolish; by combining Tragedy and Comedy together.
-Another major event is the rule of Queen Elizabeth. She supported the arts and enjoyed watching plays. Renaissance theater was thought as sacrilegious and was banned. But because of the Queen's enjoyment of the art, she allowed it to be preformed for the general public.
