The best-known dramatist from this period is perhaps the most famous playwright of all time-William Shakespeare. However, Shakespeare had many contemporaries whose talents rivaled his in many aspects. In fact, many plays of the period, outside of Shakespeare's, are still seen in repertory and educational theaters today. Frequently performed without intermission in outdoor theaters and during daylight, these playwrights' works captivated audiences during their era much as they still do in today's state-of-the-art theaters. The study of authors who created such works as 'The Alchemist,' 'Doctor Faustus,' and 'Hamlet,' remains an integral aspect of every student's education. 23 entries include: George Chapman,John Day,Richard Greene,Thomas Heywood,Ben Johnson,Christopher Marlowe,Thomas Preston,William Shakespeare.
