  • William Shakespeare bapt. 26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616 was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist. 
  • He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" or simply "the Bard". 
  • His extant works, including collaborations, consist of some 39 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship.  
  • His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. 
  • At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna and twins Hamnet and Judith.  
  • Sometime between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part-owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men.  
  • At age 49 around 1613, he appears to have retired to Stratford, where he died three years later. 
  • Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive; this has stimulated considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, his sexuality, his religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.
  • Shakespeare produced most of his known works between 1589 and 1613. 
  • His early plays were primarily comedies and histories and are regarded as some of the best work produced in these genres.  
  • Until about 1608, he wrote mainly tragedies, among them Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth, all considered to be among the finest works in the English language.
