Until the beginning of the Renaissance, Britain was considered as an anarchy of an ignorant culture because of the corrupted and greedy acts of the Medieval Church; Britain’s main authority... Josh Rahn, a Master of English literature, reports in his article “Renaissance Literature” that "even the English language was disdained." The preservation of Greek literature During the Renaissance, Europe started to study Greek literature...
Italy has renewed the Greek literature...
Ensuing the fall of Rome, the Muslims have devoted an admiration over the works Aristotle, Plato, Hippocrates...
The ancient texts were preserved, copied scrupulously and have later made a great influence to Europe...

between Renaissance, the Islamic Golden Age and the Ancient Greeks Golden Age The Ancient Greeks around 500 to 300 BC 15th century to 17th century The Muslims The Europeans mid-7th century to 15th century It was the Greek Golden Age and it that time Greek scholars, such as Aristotle, Plato, Hippocrates, Archimedes, Socrates and Euclid were starting to think in a rational way to find truth! The Islamic Golden Age is an era in which was established one of the largest empires in history expanding from Spain to China and Africa to Russia. The Islamic World contributed to arts, economics, law, literature, navigation, philosophy, sciences, technology and much more...
The muslim scholars preserved primitive Greek traditions and invented more.

Humanism was described as a path leading to the foundation of knowledge, deep values... Education (rich vs. poors and girls' education) There was limited access for education, except for the elites...
For the lower class families, schools weren't much “resourceful”...
During the Renaissance, 50% of the English population was 25; more youth...
In the article “Childhood during the Renaissance” (2013), it states that “the form and quality of a child's education varied according to the economic and social status of the family, sex of the child, the expectations of their parents, and the availability of the schooling”...

English poetry would bring beauty to literature and expose wisdom within words and entertain...
Shakespeare was among the best of poets. Poetry during the English Renaissance Did you know...! The English Renaissance’s last prominent poet was a Puritan. This man was John Milton and he has surpassed the great poet Edmund Spenser with his epic masterpieces of high poetry full of wisdom!!! Source:
http://humphrysfamilytree.com/Sidney/sir.philip.html Shakespeare's influence in drama and the English language Source:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Shakespeare's_plays Howbeit, William Shakespeare was excelling also in drama...

http://www.ehow.com/how_4474444_learn-speak-write-elizabethan-english.html Conclusion The radiant specter of the Renaissance came to an end.
In England, the main cause that led the conclusion of the Renaissance was the incompetency of the Queen Elizabeth I to produce a successor. When she died, anarchy ruled the country.
Be that as it may, the common feeling of agreement amid the English historians is that Queen Elizabeth I wasn’t to be fully blamed considering the fact that the Rise of Puritanism was a major obstacle for the English Renaissance!!! Source:
