from other great writers. This theory started several
hundred years after his death. Shakespeare was greatly indebted to Queen Elizabeth There is so little known about the real William Shakespeare there prompted plenty of theories about our most famous bard that are bound to pop up. The first play performed at Shakespeare’s play house was Julius Caesar in 1599.
Other plays known to have been performed by Shakespeare were Hamlet (1601-1602), Twelfth Night or What You Will (1601), and Macbeth (1606). The Queen was devoted to drama and poetry Shakespeare was known for using materials that were already done and looking at the way human nature and passion was portrayed. His last few periods included romantic tragicomedies, and most of his plays often had ideas of giving hope and saving the human condition from evil.

William was 18 at the time, and Anne was 26—and pregnant. The globe was burned down
on the 29 of June 1613. Then it was rebuilt as a monument. A story of Queen Elizabeth and Shakespeare must be noticed here,
the anecdote a mere late eighteenth-century invention relating to Queen Elizabeth at a theatre one evening while Shakespeare was playing a king, and bowing to him as she crossed the stage, but he went on with his part without returning the salutation. queen Elizabeth queen Elizabeth THE QUEEN WAS VERY DEVOTED TO DRAMA AND POETRY. SHAKESPEARE WAS VERY LOYAL TO THE QUEEN . HIS LOYALTY WAS SHOWN IN SOME OF HIS PLAYS William Herbert, Third Earl of Pembroke, 1580-1630, was the 'uomo universale' of the Early Stuart Age. A prominent courtier in the reigns of Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I, he was the most important patron of the arts of the early seventeenth century, and almost certainly the person to whom Shakespeare dedicated his Sonnets. Pembroke was an astute and powerful politician, the greatest electoral manager of the time, the wealthiest nobleman in the country, a powerful industrial entrepreneur, Chancellor of Oxford University and an indefatigable promoter of colonial enterprises. william herbert young man Sonnets 1-126 seem to be addressed to an unnamed male friend considerably younger than the poet. The Young Man belongs to the upper class, is more than handsome, and is somewhat given to wantonness. We end up with true love poems here, causing commentators to fret about whether this was a homosexual relationship or if Elizabethan men simply expressed close friendship in this sort of language. the dark lady Twenty-four of Shakespeare's sonnets are addressed to a woman. We have little information about this woman, except for a description the poet gives of her over the course of the poems.Twenty-four of Shakespeare's sonnets are addressed to a woman.

Henry Wriothesly, the Earl of Southampton, became a patron soon after Shakespeare's arrival in London.
The 1593 poem 'Venus and Adonis,' and 'Tarquin and Lucrece,' written in 1594, both contain dedications the the Earl. While the first dedication is quite formal, as would be expected for something addressed to a new patron, the second dedication speaks of Shakespeare's 'Love without end' for Southampton. The Earl was very interested in drama and poetry, and loved to surround himself with talented and learned men. Shakespeare and Southampton were great friends and companions in the early years, although there relationship cooled later, when the Earl fell in love with and married one of Queen Elizabeth's attendants. The Rival Poet
the poet obliquely mentions a rival for either the patronage or the affections of the Young Man, a situation which arouses jealousy, as this poet has "a worthier pen" and "a better spirit." rival poet makes his first appearance in sonnet 21 but does not become definitively present until sonnets 79-86, where he emerges as the poet's competitor in the pursuit of his fair lord's affection William Shakespeare is referred to as a Literary Genius and much of this praise is due to the wonderful words of his short sonnet poems and his extended poems.
