Shakespeare's Life By Gannah Elkhayat

"He probably attended the grammar school in Stratford, where he would have been educated in the classics, particularly Latin grammar and literature"("William").

Maybe one of the reasons why he was so sterling at writing was because he was taught the original or classical.

His description of writing is beyond and different from any one else because of the way he was taught.

"His father, John Shakespeare, was successful in the leather business during Shakespeare's early childhood but later met with financial difficulties. During his prosperous years his father was also involved in municipal affairs, holding the offices of alderman and bailiff during the 1560s" ("William")

Shakespeare early life took place a lot without his father.

Shakespeare father during his childhood was always gone going to work.

"Shakespeare's emergence as a playwright in London (c.1592). However, various suggestions have been made regarding this time, including those that he fled Stratford to avoid prosecution for stealing deer, that he joined a group of traveling players, and that he was a country schoolteacher. The last suggestion is given some credence by the academic style of his early plays" (Lander).

Basically, know one know's what Shakespeare did in his mid-life.

There are many assumptions that he fled Stanford for prosecution reasons and some say something else, but know one really know's the truth.

"In 1594 Shakespeare became an actor and playwright for the lord chamberlain's Men. the company that later became the King's Mend under James I" ("William")

Without lord chamberlain's men we would not have the wonderful and historic Shakespeare.

The name of the organization all depends on who sponsor's it.

"By 1594, he was charter member of the theatrical company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, which was later to become the king's Men. (As the names of these acting companies indicate, theatrical groups depended on the support of a wealthy patron-the King's Men were supported by King James himself)'' (Anderson).

During his late-life Shakespeare was apart of a acting group supported by King James.

The name of the group would all depend who sponsored it.

"Romeo and Juliet was probably among the early plays that Shakespeare wrote, between 1594 and 1596. By 1612, when he returned to Stratford to live the life of a prosperous retired gentleman, Shakespeare had written thirty-seven plays, including such masterpieces as Julius Caesar, Hamlet Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth"(Anderson).

Romeo and Juliet was on of his earlier plays.

He then retires back in Stratford to live the retired gentleman life.

"Seven years after Shakespeare's death, in 1623, a huge memorial volume appeared, produced by several of his former theatrical associates, which contained nearly all of his plays (many printed in full for the first time)" (Rubinstein).

Even after Shakespeare death their are many people who still give him recognition for his amazing work

Shakespeare stories and plays are still being perform all throughout the world

"For generations Shakespearean scholars have toiled to clarify factual bases for the Bard's history plays that portray England's contentious and colourful Plantagenet era"(Bailey).

Many people want to know what happened during the colourful Plantagent ear.

I believe they want to know if the bases for the Brad's history is true.

"In creating characters such as Hotspur and Margurite, Shakespeare gave his imagination free rein. Indeed, his representation of human character and personality is the reason for our timeless attraction to his work"(Bailey).

Every character Shakespeare created he made them so unique and special in there own ways.

When creating character he just let his imagination go wild.

"Conventional wisdom says that although for the most part Shakespeare remained faithful to history, the plays do contain fictional elements"(Bailey).

For the most part Shakespeare told the truth when writing about history.

However some parts are fake.
