Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
 
Though it's titled The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, the man himself appears only in five scenes in the entire play!

The ghost of the dead king then appears and charges Claudius with 'murder most foul.' Ham ...

Hag, The by HERRICK, Robert

A poem for Halloween by the 17th century English author Robert Herrick. His poems were not widely popular at the time they were published. His style was strongly influenced by Ben Jonson, by the classical Roman writers, and by the poems of the late Elizabethan era.

His works were rediscovered in the early nineteenth century, and ...

Astrophil and Stella is a sonnet sequence written by Philip Sidney, an Elizabethan poet and courtier. It details the frustrated love of Astrophil (whose name means "star-lover") for his beloved Stella (whose name means "star").

Reign of King Edward the Third, The by SHAKESPEARE, William
 
The Reign of King Edward the Third is an Elizabethan play printed anonymously in 1596. It has frequently been claimed that it was at least partly written by William Shakespeare, a view that Shakespeare scholars have increasingly endorsed. The rest of the play was probably written by Thomas Kyd. The play contains many gibes at Scotland and the Scottish people, which has led some critics to think that it is the work that incited George Nicolson, Queen Elizabeth's agent in Edinburgh, to protest ...
