The last twenty years of Elizabeth's reign were a golden era for English drama and poetry, producing such masterpieces as William Shakespeare's histories and comedies, Edmund Spenser's Faerie Queene, the sonnets of Shakespeare and Sir Philip Sidney, and the early verse of Ben Jonson and John Donne.
