Pros and Cons of the Elizabethan eraThe Elizabethan era was a great time for England. It was very intellectual, and saw importantfigures such as Queen Elizabeth I, Sir Francis Drake, William Shakespeare, and ChristopherMarlowe. There is a phrase from Shakespeare that specifically intrigues me simply by the doubt itproduces in my head, it goes as this: “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes itso”-William Shakespeare. The quote is from Hamlet, and it explains how judgement affects howyou react to situations. Later on, J.K. Rowling probably based herself on this when she made thefollowing quote: “There is no good or evil: only power and those too weak to seek it”-J.K. Rowling.
