About the Writer:
English poet and playwright William Shakespeare (1564-1616) is regarded by many as the most famous writer in the world. In a relatively short period, he wrote 39 plays and more than 150 sonnets, most of which remain the most famed works in the English language. His timeless comedies, dramas, and tragedies continue to inspire countless writers, artists, and playwrights. It is hard to find a movie, book, or theatrical production that is not inspired, in some way, by Shakespeare.
