This article considers Shakespeare's later drama works. Four of the six surviving plays that he wrote and co-wrote between 1607 and 1613 are beautiful companions for one another. The works known as the romances – Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest – sit together like circles with overlapping historical engagements. The article also examines two plays Shakespeare co-wrote with John Fletcher: The Two Noble Kinsmen and Henry VII.
