<<The Life of Shakespeare>> Payden Burgard Period 4

Now, a closer look at Shakespeare's career & accomplishments.

...William Shakespeare & his Early Life...

Shakespeare was born in a small town city "William Shakespeare was born in Stratford, a bustling market town 100 miles northwest of London" on April 23rd in the year of 1564. William was as well baptized just a few days after birth on the 26th of April that same year. It is amazing that his parents were able to raise such an outstanding and intelligent child in such a small area like their hometown. Unfortunately William passed away in the year of 1616 on April 23rd, his 52nd birthday "His birthday is celebrated on April 23rd which was also the date of his death in 1616." but the cause of his death is still to this day a mystery.
In the photo above is Anne Hathaway, William's wife. "Anne Hathaway was the wife of William from the year of 1555 to 1623." They had been together a long while and still continued to be in love for many, many years. Although in love the age difference between the two was quite the number. "She married Shakespeare in 1582, when she was 26 years old and he was 18." But back in that time this was not a problem as it is now. The couple had 3 children and the home the family grew up in is now kept as a memorial still to this day. To many, it is amazing that the parents, especially William managed to balance a love life, parenthood and still continued to impress the world with his work. He was of course a busy man and he was still outstanding at what he chose to do in his free time.
