A reverence of William Shakespeare.

Short information about his life and the fingerprint he left on our hearts.
Hi there,

It was a great honor that many people and the world in general have witnessed the master of his poet and the magnificent work he produced.

We all know about William Shakespeare and the poets he left with us when he die but he lived a tough life that we can't even imagine it and if we did thought about that deeply then our life wouldn't go as like before and it would be miserable.

Most people have heard of Shakespeare and probably know something of the plays that he wrote.However not everybody knows much about the life of this remarkable man,except perhaps that he was born in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon and that he married a woman called Anne Hathaway.We know something of his school life.We do not know,for example,how long it lasted,but we presume that he attended the local grammar school,where the principal subject taught was Latin.

Nothing certain is known of what he did between the time he left school and his departure for London.According to a local legend,he was beaten and even pit in prison for stealing rabbits and deer from the estate of a neightbouring landowner,Sir Thomas Lucy,It is said that because of this he was forced to run away from his native place.A different legend says that he was apprenticed to a Stratford butcher but did not like the life and for this reason decided to leave Starford.

Whatever caused him to leave this town of his birth.the world can be appreciated that he did so.What is certain is that he set his foot on the road to fame when he arrived in London.It is said that at first he was without money or friends there,but that he earned a little by taking care of this horses of the gentlemen who attended the plays at the theater.In time,as he became a familiar figure to the actors in the theater,they stopped and spoke to him.They found his conversation so brilliant that finally he was invited to join their company.

Earlier than 1692 there is no mention of Shakespeare either as actor,or as playwright and the name of the theater he worked in is not known.However,by this date he had become one of the three leading members of a company of actors called the Lord Chamberlain's men.This company was under the protection of the Lord Chamberlain,a powerful nobleman and an official at the Queen's Court.The company traveled about the country,giving performances in different towns and also performed plays at Court.

From what we know of his later life,it is clear that Shakespeare's connection with the theater made him a wealthy man,since his plays attracted large audiences and he shared in the profits.Towards the end of the sixteenth century he bought a large property in Stratford.It is not certain when he went back there to live,but it was probably around 1603.He is not recorded as having acted in any play after that date,though he continued writing.No less than eleven of his plays were produced during the next ten years.These include the great tragedies Othello Macbeth and King Lear.His last work was The Tempest,but he may have shared in the writing of the historical play King Henry V111.

Even after his retirement he frequently visited London.Since the road between Stratford and London passed through Oxford,he would rest there at the home of his friend John Davenant who had a deep respect and affection for the playwright.

Shakespeare died in 1616.Some years earlier he chose a gravestone under which he was to be buried.He had a curse engraved on this stone which threatened to bring misfortune to anyone who might remove his body from his grave

It seems strange that he should have had this fear.He must have known how greatly he was respected,even in his lifetime,for the genius that he showed in is plays and poems.It seems impossible that his remains could have been disturbed after his death.
He is dead but as the matter of fact he still alive.. because his poets does exist.. .

*Notice* No doubt that there are many parts are taken.However I took some parts and gathered them with the dates and the names to be well performed.
*Edit* If there is a mistake in the short telling story or a question concerning it please let me know and I would love to help.
Hope you guys enjoyed it and had a knowledge about him and the life he lived.Have a nice day~! Smile

I like it. Respectful and he truly was a great poet and playwright, just work on your grammar a bit, seeing especially how that this is a reverence for the greatest writer that has ever lived. This kinda looks copy and pasted almost from wiki mostly.

Yes,he was a great man and he left some remarkable mastery poet works and his plays attracted large audiences after joining the Lord Chamberlains,
Actually I have already acknowledged that I took parts and add them all together.However,it's not the point of view to be interviewed like that.I just want people to have more knowledge about him.
