Quote:

Chronology of Composition The chronology of Shakespeare's plays is uncertain, but a reasonable approximation of their order can be inferred from dates of publication, references in contemporary writings, allusions in the plays to contemporary events, thematic relationships, and metrical and stylistic comparisons. His first plays are believed to be the three parts of Henry VI ; it is uncertain whether Part I was written before or after Parts II and III. Richard III is related to these plays and is usually grouped with them as the final part of a first tetralogy of historical plays (Beers).

My Ideas:

Shakespeare's plays were never before seen at the time he started his plays

if it was not for Shakespeare's plays, the modern theatres would not exist nor would we be be reading and/or watching his plays and bieng inspired by his work.

Quote:

Since his death Shakespeare's plays have been almost continually performed, in non-English-speaking nations as well as those where English is the native tongue; they are quoted more than the works of any other single author ("William").

My Ideas:

This shows how Shakespeare's plays have changed the world for generations to come.

This also shows how his plays and stories have changed the world and they will be preformed/spoken for years to come.

Quote:

Shakespeare's first published works were two narrative poems, Venus and Adonis (1593) and The Rape of Lucrece (1594). In 1599 a volume of poetry entitled The Passionate Pilgrim was published and attributed entirely to Shakespeare . However, only five of the poems are definitely considered his, two appearing in other versions in the Sonnets and three in Love's Labour's Lost. A love elegy, The Phoenix and the Turtle, was published in 1601 ("William").

My Ideas:

shakespeare's poetry inspires poets to this day.

to this day, people of all ages love shakespeare and his poetry.

Quote:

The strength of Shakespeare's plays lies in the absorbing stories they tell, in their wealth of complex characters, and in the eloquent speech—vivid, forceful, and at the same time lyric—that the playwright puts on his characters' lips. It has often been noted that Shakespeare's characters are neither wholly good nor wholly evil, and that it is their flawed, inconsistent nature that makes them memorable ("William").

My Ideas:

This shows how the elements in his plays and stories have captured audiences for years to come.

This also shows how shakespeare has changed the world

Quote:

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. While little is known of Shakespeare's boyhood, he probably attended the grammar school in Stratford, where he would have been educated in the classics, particularly Latin grammar and literature. Whatever the veracity of Ben Jonson's famous comment that Shakespeare had "small Latine, and less Greeke," much of his work clearly depends on a knowledge of Roman comedy, ancient history, and classical mythology ("William").

My Ideas:

This shows his life and what it was like.

This shows how the legendary poet started his life and how he later becomes the legendary poet/playwright we know today.

Quote:

In 1594 Shakespeare became an actor and playwright for the Lord Chamberlain's Men, the company that later became the King's Men under James I. Until the end of his London career Shakespeare remained with the company; it is thought that as an actor he played old men's roles, such as the ghost in Hamlet and Old Adam in As You Like It. In 1596 he obtained a coat of arms, and by 1597 he was prosperous enough to buy New Place in Stratford, which later was the home of his retirement years. In 1599 he became a partner in the ownership of the Globe theatre, and in 1608 he was part owner of the Blackfriars theatre. Shakespeare retired and returned to Stratford c.1613. He undoubtedly enjoyed a comfortable living throughout his career and in retirement, although he was never a wealthy man.

My Ideas:

this shows how Shakespeare becomes the playwright/poet we know today

this shows how popular he became and the wealth he had.

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:

This shows how Shakespeare started his successful life/career

This also shows how bittersweet his life started like.
