    About " William Shakespeare "

  • William Shakespeare

    William Shakespeare baptised 26 April 1564 was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world s pre eminent dramatist He is often called England s national poet and the Bard of Avon or simply The Bard His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford upon Avon Scholars believe that he died on his fifty second birthday, coinciding with St George s Day.At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain s Men, later known as the King s Men He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later Few records of Shakespeare s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613 His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare s.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare s genius, and the Victorians hero worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called bardolatry In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life Shakespeare s writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589 There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.

  • This was the challenge I set myself for new years:to read all of Shakespeare's plays. I downloaded them onto my e-reader and started at the beginning and read straight through. I read on break at work, on buses, in waiting rooms, basically any time I would probably have done nothing. At home I read novels and other things. A usually read a few scenes a day. Let me tell you, a little Shakespeare every day is a very good thing. It's been a rough year, and this was wonderful.Today, I finished. I fe [...]

  • While I have admittedly not worked through all of these audios yet, those I have listened to and studied from have been stellar. Absolutely wonderful. As a high school English teacher I use them in my classroom and my students really get into the plays because of the wonderful performances. This is close to the experience Shakespeare's audience would have had and truly brings his plays alive. I consider this to be timeless: Shakespeare's plays well performed by talented and trained experts. Love [...]


  • Not Helpful for StudentsI'm currently writing my dissertation and I just needed to know what lines referenced Sycorax. Imagine my frustration when I realized that this edition did not have line numbers. This edition was very inexpensive, but if I had known about this short-coming, I would have paid more for a better copy.


  • 1. Oxford Bookworms Library; Level 22. 5/27 = 60 minutes3. friend - London - theatre - actor - poet - playwright - read4. What kind of books do you like?- I like nobel.5. It is good to know about Shakespeare. I am interested in reading or watching a movie of his things, such as Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet.


  • In Juneau we are reading all of the First Folio plays. One of our local theaters, Theater in the Rough, has talented actors reading parts (with a few non-actors reading non-lead parts). It is great to read in the original language with the original spelling. Having a wonderful time.
