Quote:

During Shakespeare’s time, the English cared little about keeping biographical information unrelated to affairs of the church or state. In addition, playwriting was not a highly regarded occupation, and so people saw little point in recording the lives of mere dramatists. However, a number of records exist that deal with Shakespeare’s life. They include church registers and accounts of business dealings. Although these records are few and incomplete by modern standards, they provide much information. By relating these records to various aspects of English history and society, scholars have constructed a believable and largely comprehensive account of Shakespeare’s life. However, gaps remain. Perhaps the most frustrating gap is the general absence of personal papers that might provide access to the playwright’s thoughts and feelings. As a result, biographers almost always examine the plays and poems for autobiographical clues.

Paraphrase:

while Shakespeare was playwriting he was attending church. The church he attended still has records of him but they haven't been released.

Quote:

Wherever Shakespeare was beforehand, we know that he was back in Stratford by November 27, 1582, which is when the 18½-year-old William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway (ca. 1555–1623), who was eight years older and three months pregnant. The sum of £40 was put up as a surety for the marriage as William was still technically a minor. He also required his father's approval of the marriage.

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare got married at a very young age to a woman that was significantly older than him.

Quote:

"Shakespeare's plays are still produced all over the world. During a Broadway season in the 1980's, one critic estimated that if shakespeare were alive, he would be receiving $25,000 a week in royalties for a production of Othello alone. The play was attracting larger audiences that any other nonmusical production to town"

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare was the richest man alive and if he was still alive, he would be making a lot of money.

Quote:

At some point after his marriage, and probably after the birth of his children, Shakespeare must have made his way to London and joined the theatrical world there. Little is known for certain about how this happened, but it is thought that Shakespeare might have first worked as a minor actor in one of London's theater companies before making his name as a playwright. In 1592, in Greene's Groatsworth of Wit , the well-known poet, dramatist, and prose writer Robert Greene (1558–92) mentioned Shakespeare in a way implying that Shakespeare Was at the time a force to be reckoned with on the London stage. Greene warns his fellow dramatists to be wary of the "upstart crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his Tygers hart wrapped in a Player's hide , supposes he will be able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you: and being an absolute Iohannes fac totum [Jack of all trades], is in his owne conceit the onely Shake-scene in a country"

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare was in a theatrical theater while he was married and after that created a lot of success and money.

Quote:

In August 1596 Shakespeare's son Hamnet died. Early the next year Shakespeare Bought a home, New Place, in the center of Stratford; he is said to have planted a mulberry tree in the back yard with his own hands. Shakespeare's relative prosperity is indicated by his purchasing more than a hundred acres of farmland in 1602, a cottage near his estate later that year, and half-interest in the tithes of some local villages in 1605.

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare lost his own child. after that he decided to buy a home and to plant trees in his backyard.

Quote:

There is no evidence that Shakespeare's parents could write, although their signatures in the form of markings on documents are extant. It is assumed that from around the age of five to seven, William Shakespeare went to a school where he would have learned to read. Stratford, in common with other English towns of a similar stature, had a grammar school, which was founded in around 1427. The sons of prosperous town citizens would have attended it. At such grammar schools, students learned classical history and Latin literature, including Livy's history; Cicero's speeches; Plautus and Terence's comedies; Seneca's tragedies; Virgil's poetry; and the works of Ovid, a poet frequently referred to in Shakespeare's early work

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare learned how to read and write and a very young age, unlike his parents.

Quote:

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. During much of this period, Shakespeare ranked as London’s most popular playwright, based on the number of times his plays were performed and published. But his reputation was largely that of a popular playwright, not of a writer of unequaled genius.Few people gave Shakespeare the praise that later generations heaped on him. An exception was the English clergyman and schoolmaster Francis Meres. In 1598, Meres wrote Palladis Tamia: Wit’s Treasury, a book that has become an important source of information about Shakespeare’s career. In this book, Meres said of Shakespeare: “As Plautus and Seneca are accounted the best for Comedy and Tragedy among the Latins: so Shakespeare among the English is the most excellent in both kinds for the stage.” Although Moore's praise did not represent everyone’s opinion, it indicates that Shakespeare had become an established writer by at least the late 1590’s.

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare theater life was overwhelming. He got more famous day by day and he was getting more popular.
