Shakespeare By Nathan signorelli

Shakespeare influenced the world of theatre through his early, middle, and late life.

Beginning at about the age of 7, William probably attended the Stratford grammar school with other boys of his social class. The school’s highly qualified teachers were graduates of Oxford University. Shakespeare went to grammar school at the age of 7 and got a good education. I think Shakespeare got a good education that lead to being a famous poet.

Stratford

The students chiefly studied Latin, the language of ancient Rome. Knowledge of Latin was necessary for a career in medicine, law, or the church. In addition, the ability to read Latin was considered a sign of an educated person. Shakespeare studied Latin that was necessary for medicine, law, or Church. I think Shakespeare studied Latin to become a good poet.

In spite of the long hours he spent in school, Shakespeare’s boyhood was probably not all boring study. As a market center, Stratford was a lively town. In addition, holidays provided popular pageants and shows, including plays about the legendary outlaw Robin Hood and his merry men. Shakespeare spent a lot of time at school and his town provided popular pageants and shows. I think the pageants and shows and school inspired Shakespeare to be a poet.

After arriving in London, Shakespeare began an association with one of the city’s repertory theater companies. These companies consisted of a permanent cast of actors who presented a variety of plays week after week. Shakespeare was associated with a theater company that had actors who presented a variety of plays. I think Shakespeare becomes a more famous playwright.

The Lord Chamberlain's Men were one of the most popular companies in London. In large part because of Shakespeare's talents, they would go on to become the dominant company in England during the late 1500's and early 1600's. During the 1500's and 1600's The Lord Chamberlain's Men were one of the most popular companies in London and would go on to become the dominant company in England because of Shakespeare's talents. I think Shakespeare's playwriting and poetry made The Lord Chamberlain's Men a more successful company.

The Lord Chamberlain's Men

From mid-1592 to 1594, London authorities frequently closed the theaters because of repeated outbreaks of plague. Without the income provided by acting and playwriting, Shakespeare turned to poetry. In 1593, Venus and Adonis became the first of Shakespeare’s works to be published. Shakespeare did poetry because London authorities closed theaters in 1592 to 1594. I think he started witing more poems in 1592, 1593, and 1594.

Shakespeare's Poetry

Throughout the 1590’s, Shakespeare’s reputation continued to grow. From 1594 to 1608, he was fully involved in the London theater world. In addition to his duties as a sharer and actor in the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, he wrote an average of almost two plays a year for his company. Shakespeare became more famous in the 1590's and was totally involved in the London Theater world in 1594 to 1608. I think his reputation was largely that of a popular playwright, not of a writer of unequaled genius.

During his last eight years, Shakespeare was the sole author of only three plays—Cymbeline,The Tempest, and The Winter’s Tale. He collaborated with John Fletcher, another English dramatist, in writing three more plays. He worked with John Fletcher and wrote three more plays, Cymbeline,The Tempest, and The Winter’s Tale. I think that The Tempest, written about 1610, was Shakespeare’s last play.

By 1612, Shakespeare had become England’s most successful playwright. He apparently divided his time between Stratford and London. He had lodgings in London at least until 1604 and probably until 1611. Shakespeare was the most successful playwright in England in 1612 and lived in Stratford and London. I think he may have spent much of his time in the comforts of New Place in Stratford.

However, in 1612 and 1613, Shakespeare worked closely with Fletcher, who replaced him as the chief dramatist for the King’s Men, on Cardenio (now lost), King Henry VIII, and Two Noble Kinsmen. Shakespeare worked with Fletcher for the King’s Men, on Cardenio (now lost), King Henry VIII, and Two Noble Kinsmen in 1612 and 1613. I think he was gradually leaving the stage instead of leaving it abruptly.
