Down through the centuries people have been frustrated by the lack of concrete biographical information about Shakespeare beyond a few scant details. Late in the afternoon of Tuesday, December 26, 1598, two days before their fateful rendezvous at the Theatre, the Chamberlain's Men made their way through London's dark and chilly streets to Whitehall Palace to perform for the queen. Shakespeare provavelmente viu o primeiro incidente (ocorreu em uma apresentação judicial de sua empresa) e ouviu sobre o segundo (o que pode ter inspirado a cena do quarto igualmente chocante em Hamlet, que também envolve uma rainha e um jovem indecoroso, impetuoso e armado).

Stephen Greenblatt, a renowned Shakespearean scholar who was also an adviser on the film, was perhaps the first brilliantly to transplant the groves of academe to Hollywood with his bestselling Will in the World.The Elizabethan theater had replaced some of the lost fabric of Catholic life, the liturgical underpinnings of communal life prior to the Reformation, and the Queen followed a leery course of not arousing one side or the other—Catholic or Protestant—which Shakespeare played up to in one play after another, always inscrutable, not advocating for one side or the other. But thanks to Shapiro's exemplary work, we can see just how much the personalities and issues of his time did affect the plays, and how Elizabethan audiences would have smiled at allusions lost on their modern counterparts. None the less, his intuitions, especially about the crucial influence of Marlowe on Shakespeare's development, are deeply persuasive.

Ireland was in the midst of a full scale revolt against English colonisation; the Spanish were rumoured to be plotting another invasion by armada (leading to a full scale emergency mobilisation in the summer) and Elizabeth herself was now in her dotage and without an heir.
