Shakespearean seafaring (History):

The time in which Shakespeare was writing his plays was also a time of great seafaring for Britain – so it is no surprise that ships and shipwrecks feature so heavily in his work.  It was the age of exploration, as well as a time of pirates, of warfare, and of merchant ships trading with faraway lands.
