Summary

Summary

Although England suffered poverty, plague, rebellion and religious strife during the reign of Elizabeth I, the popular image of the period, which persists to the present day, is one of relative stability at home, energetic discovery, and an unprecedented flowering of literary genius. This text highlights the political, social, and cultural changes that occurred during Elizabeth's reign, 1558-1603.
