I really like how the timeline shows important events that were happening around the world as it shows Shakespeare's life. This gives a great counterpoint and shows the influences he experienced.

I really like this timeline. I find it crazy how many wars and battles occurred during his lifetime. It gives insight to some of his play themes like Henry V.

This timeline was really helpful when it came to understanding Shakespeare and his reasons for writing what he did. It made it a lot easier see where he was coming from and why.

I am amazed at how much information there is in this timeline of Shakespeare's life. Not only does it show the specific events in his personal life, but also what is happening around him. I think that is what sets this timeline apart from others, is because there is somewhat or a correlation between his life and the world around him.

I found it quite insightful learning about Shakespeare's environment as he grew up, it really showed some light on his motives behind writing his plays.
