Christopher Marlowe, John Fletcher, or Sir Francis Bacon could have done the writing. Little is known of Shakespeare’s life during 1585 -1592. Called the lost years. His debut as a playwright was with Henry VI in 1590. From 1592-1594, the Plague closed the theater, so he wrote sonnets and narrative poems.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
