Thesis: Shakespeare influenced the world through his early, middle and late life.
Shakespeare early life:
"Shakespeare’s parents belonged to what today would be called the middle class" (Lander). While Shakespeare grew up he wasn't a wealthy family. He was like all the other normal kids and had a normal like. This shows that Shakespeare grew up as a common person. this relates to the theme because he wasn't important as a kid.
"During Shakespeare’s infancy, his father was one of the town’s leading citizens" (Harold). This quote means that Shakespeare was already known by the people. His father probably had some things to do with Williams future.Shakespeare was already looked up to because of his father before righting plays. When he started to write plays he became very popular.
"Shakespeare was criticized for mixing comedy and tragedy and failing to observe the unities of time and place prescribed by the rules of classical drama" (Shakespeare). In the beginning of his career Shakespeare was criticized a lot for making dramas. Plays were not a big thing back then and no one understood it at first. Shakespeare was one of the most famous play writers ever born. He went down in history because of what he did. I wonder how long it took people to realize how good poetry and plays were.
Shakespeare middle life:
"In 1582 Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, eight years his senior and pregnant at the time of the marriage" ("William"). Shakespeare got married to Anne Hathaway. She got pregnant at the time of marriage. He was 8 years younger than her. Men were not usually allowed to get married until 21. Shakespeare was 18 when he got married and soon later had kids.
"Playwriting was not a highly regarded occupation, and so people saw little point in recording the lives of mere dramatists" (Lander). Playwriting was not something that many people did. Most did not even see a point in doing it. Many people loved his plays. I wonder how he got so famous if it wasn't a big thing and how he got the whole theater filled up.
