"I'm drawn to that period because it was the start of English literature as we know it--the printing press was just beginning to take off, commercial theaters were opening for the first time, and suddenly there was a huge demand for fiction. Authors hadn't written on this scale before, and so they were incredibly inventive (and more than a little strange)--they could mix fantasy, romance, serious religious allegory, political satire, and crude humor, for example, into one very entertaining book.
