During the early part of Shakespeare's career, Robert Greene, George Peele, Thomas Kyd and Christopher Marlowe were popular. Later playwrights contemporary with Shakespeare were Thomas Heywood, Thomas Middleton, Thomas Dekker, Ben Jonson, Cyril Tourneur, Philip Massinger, Francis Beaumont, John Fletcher, and John Webster. Those are the most important ones, but there were more.
