""Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown" was said in "Romeo and Juliet". "The first thing we do, lets kill the players" was a quote in "Richard lll". Queen Elizabeth was the former queen of England. King James came after her for 22 years. Queen Elizabeth was influential in Shakespeare's success because she was a queen who had an interest in theater. Shakespeare's fame came after his death. Shakespeare co-owned the Globe Theatre with James Burbage which was built outside of London's city limits because 13 theaters were not allowed in the city walls. The opening date of the Globe was September 1559. The plague caused all of the theatres to shut down for two years.

Hark you means listen, knave means dishonest man, stay means to remain, and thrice means three times. Sometimes Shakespeare would shorten his words that he used. For example instead of saying it is he would say 'tis. Instead of saying open he would use the word ope, instead of over it was o'er, instead of at it was gi', instead of never he would use ne'er, instead of saying in it was I' and instead of saying often he would use oft. | Script of Romeo and Juliet

22: Essential Question: How does the Renaissance influence literature and history? | Literature and history were two major accomplishments during the Italian Renaissance. Poets, musicians, architectures, and play writers helped develop successfully during this time period. The Globe Theater is a well known example. This theater was built mainly for play writers to help them use their opportunity to produce their great work. Shakespeare's plays were produced in this theater which inspired people to come and see it being performed and in the long run this helped William Shakespeare become famous for his talents.
