A. Elizabethan

B. Baroque

C. Gothic

D. Mannerist

A

Answer: A. Elizabethan literature.

Elizabethan literature refers to literary works produced during the reign of Queen Elizabeth the 1st (1558 to 1603).

William Shakespeare was perhaps the most popular playwright during the second half or the reign of Queen Elizabeth the 1st, and in the Jacobean era. Many of his literary works were written between 1590 and 1613, and he’s probably the most influential writer of all time.

Literature at this time was characterised by romance, realism, idealism, etc. Shakespeare wrote mainly plays and tragedies like King Lear, Hamlet, and Macbeth. These plays are considered as the finest literary works in English language.
