Quote:

"The first reference to Shakespeare as a London playwright came in 1592, when a fellow dramatist, Robert Greene, wrote derogatorily of him on his deathbed" (History Staff)

My Ideas:

And this was the start of shakespeare's life, he would later start theatre,Robert Green referencing shakespeare was the start of shakespeare's theatre fame.

Shakespeare's Earlier life

Quote:

"Beginning at about the age of 7, William probably attended the Stratford grammar school with other boys of his social class. The school’s highly qualified teachers were graduates of Oxford University. Students spent about nine hours a day in school" ("william")

My Ideas:

Shakespeare had a normal childhood, he was a normal child, not special like he grew up to be.

Shakespeare spent more time in school than we do now. He was an over all normal child with a normal life before his big change.

Quote:

"Grief fills the room up of my absent child, Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me, Puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words, Remembers me of all his gracious parts, Stuffs out his vacant garments with his form… O Lord! my boy, my Arthur, my fair son! My life , my joy, my food, my all the world! My widow-comfort, and my sorrow’s cure!" (RAVILIOUS KATE).

My Ideas:

This quote shows how Shakespeare felt about his son's death, it's shows his emotions through his own words.

Its shows how big of a deal this was to him, he feels the grief, he is sad. he is getting his emotions and expressing them in writing.

Shakespeare's Mid Life

Gary Taylor "Shakespeare's mid life crisis" <i>Theguardian.com </i>n.p. Monday 3 May 2004

Quote:

"Between 1593 and 1600, Shakespeare dominated the English theater. He wrote one stage hit after another, prompting at least 10 sequels by himself and other people. He published a string of bestsellers, six in six years - a success even Stephen King or Jeffrey Archer would envy. Unlike King and Archer, Shakespeare, by the time he turned 36, was much quoted in posh anthologies" (Gary Taylor).

My Ideas:

This quote shows how much of a success Shakespeare had become and how far he had come in such a short amount of time.

Shakespeare was known by many, his plays brought laughter and joy, he was dominating theatre for his time.

Shakespeare's Late Life

Source:

Lee Jamieson "Shakespeare's Death"<i>shakespeare.about.com</i>, Published by About Education - September 11, 2016

Quote:

"The cause of death is not known, but some scholars believe that he was sick for over a month before he died. On March 25 1616, Shakespeare signed his dictated will with a “shaky” signature, evidence of his frailty at the time. Also, it was customary in the early seventeenth century to draw up your will on your deathbed, so Shakespeare must have been acutely aware that his life was coming to an end" (Lee Jamieson).

My Ideas:

This quote shows shakespeare's end and how he must have known it was his end since he wrote his will. This marked his end.

Shakespeare lived a successful life and achieved many things in his lifetime. His plays still amaze people around the world even today.

Quote:

"The playwright “retired to Stratford some years before his death,” which some take to mean that he retreated from public life " (RAVILIOUS KATE).

My Ideas:

This quote shows how after his amazing career in theatre shakespeare in his later years after his huge spike in fame from his incredible amount of plays retired.

Shakespeare couldn't go on forever so he eventually quit to later die a few years after, after his amazing career in theatre.
