“When the plague closed Shakespeare’s theater he wrote the epic poem ‘Venus and Adonis’ and did something he’d never even contemplated doing with his plays: he had it printed and published. In other words, he completely reinvented himself as an artist and transformed the way in which he connected with his audience.” – Tom Ridgely
