   schema:description "This volume characterizes English playwright William Shakespeare's (1564-1616) achievements and those of his contemporaries and attempts to categorize them in their social and differing theatrical contexts. The author is mainly concerned the sociology of the theatre and traces the evolution of the new drama from the later years of Elizabeth into the more established conditions of Jacobean times (the period in English literary history that coincides with the reign of King James I, after the death of Shakespeare). She also demonstrates the interaction of fellow English dramatist Benjamin Jonson's (1572-1637) work for the court with Shakespeare's work for the popular stage. As the leading writer now for the King's Men at the Globe I, Shakespeare's reaction to Jonson's challenge and stimulus was an increasing use of romantic elements in his plays, as he integrated the material demanded by the very different audiences at the Globe, the Blackfriars and the court. Throughout, the work takes full account of developments in stage history which have brought unexpected facts to light and have altered thinking about Shakespeare's stage."@en ;
