William Shakespeare, the pioneer of English literary world, is a universally famous dramatist whose creations and literary contributions became more in the Elizabethan period than in Jacobean age. This is why; he is identified as an Elizabethan dramatist in English literature although he is a Renaissance and modern thinker. Modernism is reflected in his plays to a great extent. Shakespeare has written thirty-seven plays in his life time. Out of them, only twenty-five plays were written in the Elizabethan Age (1558-1603).
