Renaissance/Elizabethan Theater - Renaissance theater first appeared in Italy during the 15th century. These early plays were mostly based on Roman figures and styles. Renaissance theater believed the most important concepts were the appearance of truth, emphasizing the ideal, the proper moral order, and a sense of decorum. This type of theater punished evil, rewarded good, and eliminated the use of soliloquies (long narrative dialogues in which the character is expressing his/her internal thoughts to the audience). Comedy and tragedy were not combined. Renaissance theater developed in England while Elizabeth I reigned. Two famous playwrights were Christopher Marlowe and Thomas Kyd. The most famous playwright, however, was William Shakespeare. Shakespeare had a great effect on both literature and history.
