      After the Globe Theater closed its doors in the summer of , the young playwright William Shakespeare fled the city to live for months in his hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon. One writer said it best, “William Shakespeare lived the whole of his life under the terrible cloud of Death,” caused by repeated waves of the Bubonic Plague, that. Shakespeare was also inspired by literature written because of the Black Plague. For example, "The Decameron" was a book about some men and women who took refuge in a villa in the country to avoid catching the plague. The book is divided into stories that the characters tell each other while waiting out the disease.
