    Shakespeare as a result switched to writing poems and drama full-time.
  • 6. Why Shakespeare’s Plays were well-received
    One of Shakespeare’s comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, had a witty mixture of romance, fairy magic and comic lowlife scenes
    Another of Shakespeare’s plays, Romeo and Juliet, was a romantic tragedy of sexually charged adolescence, love and death
    Shakespeare’s Macbeth also had a supernatural element in it.
    With all these different yet captivating elements in every one of his play, this is evidence of why Shakespeare’s plays were well-received.
