Shakespeare's Work. Richard II. And King John belong to this period. In the second period the plays lose many of the faults of those of the first period, and show a more finished dramatic art. His greatest historical plays and his best comedies were written now. In the third period the tragedies were written. It is thought that the misfortunes which befell some of his friends turned Shakespeare's mind to the graver things of life, and led him to work out in his dramas the dreadful consequences of evil deeds.
The fourth period is the time of calm and serenity. The plays now dwell upon domestic peace and forgiveness. The Sonnets. He did not follow the prescribed Italian form in regard to the arrangement of his rhymes, but showed his independence by making a sonnet which is called Shakespearian.

Laddas ned direkt. In The Age of Elizabeth in the Age of Johnson, Jack Lynch explores eighteenth-century British conceptions of the Renaissance, and the historical, intellectual, and cultural uses to which the past was put during the period.
Scholars, editors, historians, religious thinkers, linguists and literary critics of the period all defined themselves in relation to 'the last age' or 'the age of Elizabeth'. Seventeenth- and eighteenth-century thinkers reworked older historical schemes to suit their own needs, turning to the ages of Petrarch and Poliziano, Erasmus and Scaliger, Shakespeare, Spenser, and Queen Elizabeth to define their culture in contrast to the preceding age. They derived a powerful sense of modernity from the comparison, which proved essential to the constitution of a national character.
This interdisciplinary study will be of interest to cultural as well as literary historians of the eighteenth century.
