How do you define Elizabethan playwright? He lived during the Elizabethan period. Does that not make him an Elizabethan playwright?

I think some answers were not entirely correct, more research needed? Surely he was in Elizabethan times, not on how much he was a businessman??

Shakespeare was an Elizabethan. Also, There is substantial evidence that Shakespeare could have been a fraud.

Richard D. Boyle, INDEED. Shakespeare lived from 1567 to 1616. Scholars and historians often refer to him being a part of the Elizabethan Era, the period of English history during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, which lasted from 1558 - 1603, and was itself part of the larger Tudor Period.

Yes information please - 40 languages, OK was it more or less? And I was told when studying him that a lot of his writing followed the propaganda of the Elizabethans, such as portraying Richard III as evil.

9/10. I’m not sure how Shakespeare can be considered as anything other than Elizabethan.

8/10... question #4 needs to be rewritten! As it stands, it is decidedly disingenuous. Shakespeare’s works have been translated into more than 100 different languages, which means that they have most certainly been translated into 40, making ‘true’ the correct answer as the question now stands.

Even though he admittedly passed in the Jacobean era, I don't see how it can be wrong to call him an Elizabethan!
