Fourteen years younger than Shakespeare, John Fletcher made an impact on the Bard by writing a sequel to "The Taming Of The Shrew" called "The Woman's Prize or The Tamer's Tamed." Fletcher, a very talented writer, was used in collaborations, and so was a natural choice to work with Shakespeare. When all is said and done, he was the guy who became the head dramatist of the King's Players when Shakespeare left.
