    Renaissance poetry at the time of the Renaissance in Europe, between the 14 th and 17 th centuries, was focused on the arts. Poetry was based on the classical arts of Ancient Rome and Greece, and on the beliefs of the people.

The achievement of Christopher Marlowe, poet and dramatist, was enormous—surpassed only by that of his exact contemporary, William Shakespeare. A few months the elder, Marlowe was usually the leader, although Shakespeare was able to bring his art to a higher perfection. Most dramatic poets of the 16th century followed where Marlowe had led, especially in their use of language and the blank.
