    Shakespeare, plagues, and a post-apocalyptic novel. On the eve of Shakespeare's th birthday, people around the world are preparing to celebrate the Bard and his plays. But what is it about his work that means we still celebrate not only his plays, but also his birthday? Aug 03,  · ‘thou art a boil, A plague-sore, an embossed carbuncle, In my corrupted blood.’ (Act 2 Scene 4 Lines ) A different dramatic invocation of plague is used by the eponymous Timon in Timon of Athens. Here, writing some time before or perhaps at the start of a renewed outbreak of plague, Shakespeare explicitly nods to its power.

    The Black Plague affected William Shakespeare by closing the London theaters where his plays were performed. The disease also killed many of Shakespeare's family members including his only son. William Shakespeare was greatly affected by the Black or Bubonic Plague early on in his life.
