William Shakespeare was an English playwright and poet who is widely considered the greatest dramatic play writer and thespian of all time.

Shakespeare’s work, romanticism in poems, and tragic plays make him well known as the “Bard of Avon.” Shakespeare’s plays and poems known throughout the world are what colleges and professional writers call the greatest poetic writings in all of history. There is yet one thing about Shakespeare that is not been solved yet. Shakespeare’s been looked into by poets and other professional writers. It is Shakespeare’s personal life, however, that is shrouded completely in mystery and confusion.

William Shakespeare born April 26, 1564 and was an English playwright, actor and poet and is often called England’s national poet. Born in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, he was an important member of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men Company of theatrical players from roughly 1594 to several years later.

Written records give little indication of the way in which Shakespeare’s professional life molded his artistry. Somehow, in his 20 years as a playwright, Shakespeare wrote plays that capture the complete range of human emotion and conflict.

Known throughout the world, William Shakespeare’s have performed in countless hamlets, villages, cities, and metropolises for more than 400 years. Somehow, the personal history of William Shakespeare is somewhat a mystery. What I know about Shakespeare is that he supposedly did plays for several kings and queens.

Some of these royal or bourgeois people include Queen Elizabeth the first and King Henry the first. This in my opinion is why I think he became most famous for besides his plays performed across the world. Two primary sources provide historians with a basic outline of his life. One source is his work the plays, poems, sonnets, and the other is official documentation such as church and court records. However, these only provide brief sketches of specific events in his life and provide little on the person who experienced those events.
