Who is William Shakespeare?​
  • He was born April 26, 1564, Stratford-upon-Avon, during the Elizabethan era in England​
  • He died April 23, 1616 at the age of 52​
  • As a boy he attended a grammar school of good quality, and the education there was free.​
  • The boy’s education would consist mostly of Latin studies—learning to read, write, and speak the language fairly well and studying some of the Classical historians, moralists, and poets.​
  • Shakespeare did not go on to the university​
  • At age 18 he married Anne Hathaway who was 26. ​
  • His daughter Susanna, was born on May 26, 1583. ​
  • On February 2, 1585, twins were baptized, Hamnet and Judith. (Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died 11 years later.) ​

After the birth of the twins, there are few historical traces of Shakespeare until he is mentioned as part of the London theatre scene in 1592. ​

How Shakespeare spent the next eight years or so, until his name begins to appear in London theatre records, is not known ​

-Because of this gap, scholars refer to the years between 1585 and 1592 as Shakespeare’s “lost years”. 

Why Read Shakespeare today?

  • He wrote  38 plays, invented the wrote Shakespearean sonnets and 5 other poems and used about 21,000 different words.​
  • Shakespeare is credited by the Oxford English Dictionary with the introduction of nearly 3,000 words into the language. ​
