I would like to suggest that because there are a limited number of
essential relationships, and, concomitantly, there are a limited number
of essential conflicts.  While the window dressing of the conflict may
change, the basic conflicts of any story is one which emerges from the
interaction of its characters.  So, yes, I do believe that the persons
Shakespeare met in early modern England embodied all the conflicts which
ever, and could ever take place even though the specifics of the
conflicts may vary.  Elizabethans were simply people whose history may
be different to our own but whose basic humanity was the same.
