Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
The play was written in around 1601 in the aftermath of the Essex rebellion and a year or so after the failed second Spanish Armada. The State of England was in question. Elizabeth was getting older with no heir and the Political machinations of the English Catholics were becoming stronger. For Shakespeare the times were dangerous and life was short: his contemporaries were often in trouble for sedition and Christopher Marlowe was “killed in a brawl” over a bill.
