William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare
He is recognized as one of literature's greatest influences, very little is actually known about him. What we do know about his life comes from registrar records, court records, wills, marriage certificates and his tombstone. Anecdotes and criticisms by his rivals also speak of the famous playwright and suggest that he was indeed a playwright, dramatist, poet and an actor. Especially Shakespeare's reputation as dramatist and poet actor is unique but many of the facts of his life remain mysterious. (1564 -1616)
