To close season five of the podcast I pick up three items I dropped in the previous narrative and then offer some concluding thoughts:
Thomas Watson – the life and works of the possible co-author of ‘Arden of Faversham.
Henry Chettle – the life and works of the prolific collaborator.
Thomas Heywood – the life and works of a playwright now better remembered for his commentary on others rather than for his own work.
Drawing some conclusions on:
The public playhouses
The State vs. the theatre
The growth of education
Pamphlets, prose, and poetry
The city of London
The lesser known playwrights
