Direct Quote:

"he is the most famous writer in the world," (Anderson 776)

"By 1594, he was a charter member of the theatrical company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, which was later to become the King's men. Shakespeare worked with this company for the rest of his writing life. Year after year he provided it with plays, almost on demand. Shakespeare was the ultimate professional writer. (Anderson 777)

Paraphrase:

In this quote shows, what company Shakespeare worked for and did for that company. He worked for The Lord Chamberlain's Men/ King's Men. Shakespeare wrote plays so fast and easy. He was the best of the best. He was dedicated to his work.

My Ideas:

I chose this quote because it shows that he committed to writing his plays. Shakespeare had a theater that needed a story. Plays that needed to be wrote. He needed demands to be fulfilled.

Direct Quote:

" We know that William was born the third of eight children around April 23, 1564, in Stratford." (Anderson 776)

"William attended grammar school, where he studied Latin grammar, Latin literature, and rhetoric." (Anderson 777)

"At the age of eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway... Sometime after the birth of their second and third children, Shakespeare moved to London, apparently leaving his family in Stratford." ( Anderson 777)

"Shakespeare died April 23, 1616, at the age of fifty-two." (Anderson 777)

'

Paraphrase:

In these quotes shows, a little bit of Shakespeare's life before playwriting. He was born April 23, 1564 and died April 23, 1616.He was fifty-two when he passed. He went to grammar school, learned Latin, and rhetoric. He had a wife Anne and three kids. Which he soon left to pursue a life in London. Where he became a playwright.

My Ideas:

I chose these quotes because, its a little of Shakespeare's history before the fame. He had some education. In my opinion he was a great writer, but its sad that he left his life of a wife and kids behind.

Direct Quote:

" Sometimes playwrights influence the shape and form of a theater, but more often existing theaters seem to influence the shape and form of plays. It is important that we understand Shakespeare's theater because it influenced how he wrote his plays. Shakespeare took the theater of his time, and used it brilliantly." (Anderson 778)

Paraphrase:

In this quote shows, how playwrights effect shape and form of a theater. Now theaters effect shape and form of plays. You would need to know and understand the theater that Shakespeare used because it has a great effect on the plays he wrote. He took his time with the theater and made it amazing.

My Ideas:

I chose this quote because, of the importance of a Shakespeare theater is he based the play of his theaters. He took time to get to know his theater which helped him with his plays. The theater is the base of his plays. Without a theater there is no play. Without a play there is no show.

Direct Quote:

"In 1599, Burbage's theater was torn down and its timbers were used by Shakespeare and his company to build the Globe Theatre. This was the theater for which Shakespeare wrote most of his plays." (Anderson 778)

Direct Quote:

" constructed the theater in 1599 from the timbers of London's first playhouse, called The Theatre." (Seidel)

"Shakespeare owned a modest percentage of the theater and its operations."

Paraphrase:

In this quote shows, the background of The Globe Theater. This theater was built in the year 1599. It was made with timber from London's playhouse. Shakespeare and his company owned the theater.

My Ideas:

I chose this quote because, it is a little background on The Globe Theater. This theater is also one of Shakespeare's theaters. This theater went through a lot it burnt down, got rebuilt, got shut down, and then rebuilt again. I'd say The Globe Theater counts as a part of history.

Direct Quote:

"The Globe was round or polygonal on the outside and probably round on the inside. The theater may have held as many as 3,000 spectators. Its stage occupied the open-air space, with a pit in front for standing viewers." (Seidel)

Paraphrase:

In this quote shows, the inside of the globe. The Globe Theater was just like a globe round. It can hold up to three thousand people in the audience. The stage was open spaced. The audience in the place up front is called the pit.

My Ideas:

I chose this quote because, it gives a little information on how it is inside The Globe Theater. This theater holds almost the same amount of The Elizabethan Theatre. It also has an open spaced stage for the actors to perform on. I think it is pretty interesting how it is called the globe theater because its round and big like the globe of the world.

Lander, Jesse M. "Shakespeare, William." <i>World Book Advanced</i>. World Book, 2016. Web. 30 Nov. 2016.

Direct Quote:

"The Elizabethan Theater: Shakespeare wrote his plays to suit the abilities of particular actors and the tastes of specific audiences. The physical structure of the theaters in which his works were presented also influenced his playwriting. He used many dramatic devices that were popular in the Elizabethan theater but are no longer widely used. Modern readers and theatergoers can enjoy Shakespeare’s plays more fully if they know about the various theatrical influences that helped shape them." (Lander)

Paraphrase:

In this quote shows, facts about the Elizabethan theater. Shakespeare always wrote his plays fitting to his actors, audience, and theater. The structure of the theater displays his play. He used special tools in the Elizabethan Theater. People that watch Shakespeare's play must understand his theater to enjoy his plays.

My Ideas:

I chose this quote because, the Elizabethan Theater was one of Shakespeare's theaters. His plays for a theater fit perfect. He used fancy devices at this theater. It is good to understand a little of his meaning of a theater so you can get a full feel of the show.

actors *

Direct Quote:

"Acting companies consisted of only men and boys because women did not perform on the Elizabethan stage. A typical acting company had 8 to 12 sharers, a number of salaried workers, and apprentices. The sharers were the company's leading actors as well as its stockholders. They had charge of the company's business activities. They bought plays and costumes, rented theaters, paid fees, and split the profits. The salaried workers, who were called hirelings, took minor roles in the plays, performed the music, served as prompters, and did various odd jobs. The apprentices were boys who played the roles of women and children." (Lander)

Paraphrase:

In this quote shows, acting companies. The actors were only men no women. Each acting company had about eight actors. The main actors were in charge of business. They pay for their own costumes, theater, fees and profit. Actors that were not main did many different jobs. Some boys took the act of women.

My Ideas:

I chose this quote because, it is the break down of the actors part. It is odd that all of the actor were only men in plays. So its funny that some of them have to play the part of women. It is interesting though how they are in charge of their own payments on set. After performing they share the money they earned.

Direct Quote:

"Shakespeare's audiences. Shakespeare wrote most of his plays for audiences with a broad social background. To the Globe Theatre came a cross section of London society, ranging from apprentices skipping work to members of the nobility passing the time. But most of the Globe’s audience consisted of prosperous citizens, such as merchants, craftworkers, and their wives, and members of the upper class. The theaters of London were an attraction, and visitors to the city were often part of the audience." (Lander)

Paraphrase:

In this quote shows, that Shakespeare wrote his plays for his audience. A part of the audience was London society. The Globe's audience ranged from upper class to lower class. The theater was a great attraction to London and visitors.

My Ideas:

I chose this quote because, the audience is a big part of a show. He wrote shows for his audience. The audience was always filled with different types of people. His theater is a very social place. The audience was mainly people from London.
