In this chapter Sir Walter Ralegh first tells us tht England has been through alot.Thy were at tht time in dark age bt thn Elizabethan period came tht brought Renissance.People stood against the Churches and the Pope and stood fr there rights.People started discovring new things.In this period poets played an important role in bring a grt change in tht time.The most important person or poet was Shakespeare. Ralegh admired Shakespeare alot and he was not only a grt fan of his work,,his dramas,his poetry bt he admired Shakespeare as well. He says tht no one can understand wt he really meant in his work.Shakespeare was a person who hated pedantry he was so against it.He always represented the people nt just himself.There was something interesting in his plays tht one finds after watching thm or reading thm through heart.His poetry is like a sea full of thoughts ,feelings,emotions.His world of sea is very mysterious.Under tht sea he hides the grt treasures of knowledge of feelings.He questions everything but when it comes to God made he keeps quite.Shakespeare has tolerence to imperfection,weakness.He was an inspiration nt only fr England bt fr whole Europe.He was a natural writer and a grt observer.He hates cruelty.If he ever find himself in such situations tht had a clash btw the mind and the heart he always moved back and was always on the side of feelings.He respected the feelings of heart and he knew tht thy meant alot.Ralegh thinks English people are compromising and Shakespeare had strong compromising in him.To him Thoughts are actually inspired where as Heart was insticts.The English people knew him best becoz he was one of thm to thm he was nt a poet or a dramatist bt a human an English man.Ralegh says tht even if other people of diff countires admire him or love him thy could never understand him or love him as much as his own people coz he was theres.England owned him.The people or forginers did coppied his dramas and poetry bt it didnt had Shakespeare in thm.When thy translated his work in there language it lost its value it wasnt tht anymore.Thy lost the essance of Shakespeare.Though he was revisied by critics still he had a closely touch with his people.Shakespeare he was to the forginers a poet,dramatics his work.But the English thy donot only love him fr his work,his passion,his writing ,his poetry but fr his humanity,his heart,his feelings.He was theres he was not just a writer but an Englishman a human.
