William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was an English poet and dramatist. People call him The Bard. William was born in 1564. He was married to an older woman: Anne Hathaway. They had three children: Susana and the twins Hamnet and Judith.  Shakespeare was one of the best writers and playwrights of all times.  His works consist of about:

38 plays. Some of his famous plays are: Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Tempest, Macbeth… etc.

154 sonnets: When forty winters shall besiege thy brow, When in disgrace with fortune, O never say that I was false of heart… etc.

Two long narrative poems and three epitaphs, two for John Combe and one for Elias James, and other poems.

I really love this dramatist, I love his plays, because I admire his talent with the words, and his life is very interesting too. Because a lot of mysteries of this are unsolved.
