Notecards

Unpiled

Early life #1

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," (shakespeare)

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare wasn't so wealthy when he lived as a kid. They predicted that he attended a grammar school in Stratford where he took grammar classes.

My Ideas:

This fits in of what I know because if Shakespeare wouldn't attended the grammar school, he wouldn't be the writer that he is today. Also if he wouldn't had the economic struggle as when he was child, he wouldn't be push to achieve something.

Early life #3

Quote:

"William was born in a period of time called the Renaissance , a European Cultural movement that focused in the rebirth of art , literature, and science. The Renaissance began in Italy, and by the sixteen century it had spread through England," ( Kesselring 8 )

Paraphrase:

William Shakespeare, was born in the Renaissance. At the time the rebirth of art, Literature., and science was influenced.

My Ideas:

Shakespeare was influenced mostly by the Renaissance. You can assume because it was the period were everything in the arts was rebirth.

Early life#2

Quote:

"At age eighteen William hastily married Anne Hathaway, who was eight years his senior and pregnant. Their daughter Susanna was born on May 26, 1583. On February 2, 1585, twins Hamnet and Judith Shakespeare—named after Stratford friends Hamnet and Judith Sadler—were baptized," (Gaines paragraph 3)

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare was married at an early age such as age eighteen. His first child was named Susanna and was born on May 26,1583. Then on February 2,1583 He had twins named Hamnet and Judith Shakespeare.

My Ideas:

At age eighteen Shakespeare had married Anne Hathaway. He had three kids with her. This might of influenced him on being someone better with no education ,to be able to raise a family.

Later years#4

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare had a memorial on the riverbank above the church. This memorial mentioned his theater, a museum, and a library that contains books about him.

My Ideas:

This fits into what I know because it concludes on what shakespeare offered the world. His memorial showed all of his life which made people understand more about him.

Later Years #1

Paraphrase:

In other words, Shakespeare was very successful writer and it would of all payed off if he were alive in the later years of history.He would been receiving $25,000 a week.

My Ideas:

With all of Shakespeare's plays, he would of made a lot of money in the 1980s . This fits in of what I know because Shakespeare was very successful writer which would of made him, many dollars to contribute his work.

Later years #2

Quote:

"During his last eight years, Shakespeare was the sole author of only three plays— Cymbeline, The Tempest, and The Winter’s Tale. He collaborated with John Fletcher, another English dramatist, in writing three more plays. In the past, some scholars argued that The Tempest, written about 1610, was Shakespeare’s last play,"( Lander 5)

Paraphrase:

Shakespeare was the author of three plays,Cymbeline, The Tempest and The Winter's Tale. He did these three plays with John Fletcher. Some of the scholars say that The Tempest was shakespeare's last play.

My Ideas:

Shakespeare's last plays were contributed with John Fletcher, he was another English dramatist. This plays were recorded as his last eight years .The Tempest such as his last play was written about 1610.

Later years #3

Quote:

"Nicholas Rowe, an eighteenth-century Shakespeare biographer, states that the playwright “retired to Stratford some years before his death,” which some take to mean that he retreated from public life following Hamnet’s death, a period during which he may have written his Henry IV plays. By contrast, government papers show that Shakespeare regularly performed before Queen Elizabeth I, and then King James I, who succeeded to the throne in 1603, suggesting that he must have spent long periods of time in London even after his son’s death. “Some people like to think of him sitting in his study in Stratford, surrounded by books, and others imagine he was leading a hectic life in London,” says Michael Wood, an English historian and broadcaster who has worked extensively on Shakespeare’s life. “No one really knows," ( Ravilous 5)

Paraphrase:

This tells me that Before Shakespeare death, Shakespeare have written his Henry IV plays. Queen Elizabeth I and the King James 1 suggested that he must spent a lot of time in London , even after his son's death.

My Ideas:

This fits into what I know because if Shakespeare made a play about Henry IV and Queen Elizabeth made a suggestion, is just showing that Shakespeare made it big. Even though the suggestion wasn't the best, He still influenced people and made sure that people will know his name.

Middle Year#1

Quote:

"The London theater, in Shakespeare’s day, was composed of companies of men and boys (women were not allowed on the Renaissance English stage but were played by young men or boys) who performed in public playhouses roughly modeled on old innyards. The theaters were open to the air, had balconies surrounding the pit and stage, and held from two thousand to three thousand people. A group known as the University Wits John Lyly, George Peele, Thomas Lodge, Robert Greene, Thomas Nashe, and Christopher Marlowe dominated the drama. Shakespeare learned his art by imitating these Oxford and Cambridge men, but for him they were a difficult group to join. They looked down on most actors and on playwrights, such as Thomas Kyd, who had not attended a university," (Harold 5).

Paraphrase:

In the middle years of shakespeare's career, Shakespeare had a theater that was called London theater. In this theater Shakespeare made this very important because it help recognized all of his plays , very well.

My Ideas:

The London Theater was huge impact on Shakespeare's career. It help recognize his plays. In which it help, in making his plays more interesting.

Middle years #2

Paraphrase:

Richard II was one of shakespeare's first history play. It was very important because its were you could see a lot of ways shakespeare can express his writing.

My Ideas:

This fits into what I know because Shakespeare was a really creative writer which made him, very successful. This kind of writing showed history in a way that nobody could explain , except the expert himself.

Middle years #3

Quote:

''King Lear is a five-act play by the English dramatist William Shakespeare. It stands as one of his greatest tragedies and is one of the greatest pieces of writing in the literature of any country''(''King Lear'').

Paraphrase:

King Lear was on of Shakespeare's biggest plays. It was a great piece of writing that involved a tragedy.

My Ideas:

Shakespeare wrote many amazing plays that made him one of most influence writer of all time. King Lear was one of his plays that influenced many writers.
