the last question is opinion, not fact. He was an Elizabethan author. That is how he is taught at University.

Incorrect to say Shakespeare was not an Elizabethan playwright. Check the dates: Shakespeare 1564-1616, Elizabeth 1 1558-1603. I rest my case. Please publish a correction and apologise to all your followers who have been grievously mislead. Thank you.

Ken Brown, I agree that is why I did not understand the answer!

Not thrilled with this. Two of the questions on this test are flat out wrong. Number 4 is just plain incorrect. Number 9 is also wrong, according to most literary experts. Shakespeare is widely regarded as part of the Elizabethan era, and his life also overlapped with the Jacobean. Elizabeth saw his plays performed, and James the I, her successor, was widely regarded as a patron of the arts,

Although Shakespeare's productive period straddled the reigns of both Elizabeth I and King James, enough of his output was during the Elizabethan period that he could be called "Elizabethan". Indeed, the Jacobean court would not have existed as a cultural unit with Elizabeth's reign.

Shakespeare wrote a goodly number of his plays during the reign of Elizabeth I:, but some during the reign of her successor. He is generally considered to have been Elizabethan.

Steve Tingle, I agree. That’s what makes any one of that era Elizabethan. He was born some six years after her reign began and was basically 50 when she died. What else is he if not Elizabethan?
