Quote:

The summer of 1596 was a sad one for William Shakespeare . Following the success of Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream the previous year, his only son, Hamnet, died at the age of 11 (Ravilious).

My Ideas:

It's important because it's comparing what happened to his son and to his plays.

William Shakespeare was born in the small market town of Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564, the third of eight children (Lander).

Quote:

Shakespeare, William (1564-1616), was an English playwright, poet, and actor. Many people regard him as the world’s greatest dramatist and the finest poet England has ever produced (Lander).

My Ideas:

Its important because it's how he became the world's greatest dramatist. It's also important because it shows that he lived in a productive life.

Shakespeare 2

Lander, Jesse M. "Shakespeare, William." <i>World Book Advanced</i>. World Book, 2016. Web. 15 Dec. 2016.

Quote:

Shakespeare wrote at least 38 plays, two major narrative poems, a sequence of sonnets, and several short poems (Lander).

My Ideas:

It's really cool about that because that might've took years for that. Its important because that's how he made the play.

Quote:

Soon after, in 1597, the 33-year-old playwright, who was by that time the talk of London, was drawn back to his roots in Stratford-upon-Avon, the small market town about 100 miles northwest of London, where he was born (Ravilious).

My Ideas:

It's important because that's when he was drawn back. It's important because that's where he was born.

Quote:

This year marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare ’s sudden death at the age of 52, His plays continue to be performed, studied, and appropriated worldwide, and he is credited with introducing 300 words and dozens of well-known phrases into the English language (Ravilious)

My Ideas:

It's important because this is saying that he passed away and his studies and stuff continue to be performed. It's important for his studies because it can bring joy or anything to humanity.
