What are ways in which Shakespeare's work showed Renaissance influences?

Shakespeare's plays show his familiarity with classical (primarily Roman) sources, albeit the amount of familiarity a grammar school graduate might have. Likewise it is clear that he expected all of the members of his audience to have a similar familiarity. The plots of Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra and Coriolanus are drawn from Plutarch. Titus Andronicus refers explicitly to Ovid. The semi-mythical Athenian king Theseus appears in both A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Two Noble Kinsmen. The Roman gods Hymen and Jupiter actually appear onstage in As You Like It and Cymbeline respectively. The mechanicals' play in Midsummer Night's Dream has a plot drawn from Ovid, and the masques in Love's Labour's Lost and The Tempest portray characters from Roman mythology.
