William Shakespeare, Art thou not an immortal god or an incarnate of a spirit being? Howbeit thy sepulcher, is but an idol, kept sacr'd by all human?
Background[ edit ] In his own lifetime, Shakespeare saw only about half of his plays enter print. Some individual plays were published in quartoa small, cheap format. Then, inseven years after Shakespeare's death, his fellow actors John Heminges and Henry Condell compiled a folio collection of his complete plays, now known as the First Folio.
Heminges and Condell were in a position to do this because they, like Shakespeare, worked for the King's Menthe London playing company that produced all of Shakespeare's plays.
In addition to plays, poems were published under Shakespeare's name. The collection published as The Passionate Pilgrim contains genuine poems by Shakespeare along with poems known to have been written by other authors, along with some of unknown authorship.
Unattributed poems have also been assigned by some scholars to Shakespeare at various times. The Apocrypha can be categorized under the following headings.

Some of Tribute to shakespeare plays such as Pericles are believed by most scholars of Shakespeare to have been written by him at least in part. Others, such as Thomas Lord Cromwell are so atypically written that it is difficult to believe they really are by Shakespeare. Scholars have suggested various reasons for the existence of these plays.
In some cases, the title page attributions may be lies told by fraudulent printers trading on Shakespeare's reputation. In other cases, Shakespeare may have had an editorial role in the plays' creation, rather than actually writing them, or they may simply be based on a plot outline by Shakespeare.

It is unlikely that Shakespeare and Rowley would have written together, as they were both chief dramatists for rival playing companies. The play has been called "funny, colorful, and fast-paced",  but critical consensus follows Henry Tyrrell's conclusion that the play "does not contain in it one single trace of the genius of the bard of Avon",  supplemented by C.
Tucker Brooke's suggestion that Rowley was consciously imitating Shakespeare's style. A Yorkshire Tragedy was published in as the work of Shakespeare.

Hoeneger proposed John Day. In general, critics have accepted that the last three-fifths are mostly Shakespeare's, following Gary Taylor's claim that by the middle of the Jacobean decade, "Shakespeare's poetic style had become so remarkably idiosyncratic that it stands out—even in a corrupt text—from that of his contemporaries.
Mainstream scholarship agrees with this attribution, and the play is widely accepted as a worthy member of the Shakespeare canon, despite its collaborative origins. It is included in its entirety in the Oxford Shakespeareand in the Riverside Shakespeare The official website of Rufus Wainwright.
