Shakespeare's life Jesse martinez per.4

shake spear influenced the world with his early middle and late life

"age of 7, William probably attended the Stratford grammar school with other boys of his social class"(lander)

He was good at his speaking and writing skills that was above from the other students his age an older.

*How he was a smart person through out his life

*I wonder if shake spear was born smart or his parents made him work on his speaking and writing as soon as he was able to speak. i could follow up on this by continuing to learn about his early childhood.

"The school’s highly qualified teachers were graduates of Oxford University. Students spent about nine hours a day in school. They attended classes the year around, except for three brief holiday periods. The teachers enforced strict discipline and physically punished students who broke the rules"(Lander)

the school that William shakespeare went to was a very high entelligence level. Probably made them study hard and didn't allow any people that disrespected others.

this is how william became such a smart person that was very strict during his perfomences.

*i wonder if shakespeare ever broke the rules. i could follow up by researching about his school days


Shakespeare’s parents belonged to what today would be called the middle class. John Shakespeare, William’s father, was a glove maker who owned a shop in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon.("shakespeare")

shakespeares family was on the verge of being poor

this fits with what i know becuse i knew shakespears family were hard workers

i wonder if his dad worked day and night and if shakespeare helped him

Shakespeare learned his reading and writing skills from an ABC, or horn-book. Robert Speaight in his book, Shakespeare: The Man and His Achievement, describes this book as

a primer framed in wood and covered with a thin plate of transparent horn. It included the alphabet in small letters and in capitals, with combinations of the five vowels with b, c, and d, and the Lord's Prayer in English. The first of these alphabets, which ended with the abbreviation for 'and', began with the mark of the cross. Hence the alphabet was known as 'Christ cross row'--the cross-row of Richard III, I, i, 55. A short catechism was often included in the ABC book (the 'absey book' of King John, ("Shakespeare")

hakespeare started to learn his reading skills only from an A,B,C book or horn book.

I knew that shakespeare was a smart person but i didn't know he learned from a simple thing like that

I wonder if he struggled with his learning as a young kid learning in that way he did.


In 1599, Shakespeare helped build the Globe Theatre, where most of his plays were first presented(Mabillard)

shakespeare help build a theater that he mostly performed in this just comes to show how much he liked that theater that he mostly performed in that one.


i knew shakespeare was a hard working man and he did a lot in his life but i didn't know that he helped build the theater that he mostly preformed in.

i wonder if shakespeare got hurt in any way building the theater. and i can continue to research about his experience building the globe theater

Shakespeare received a license to marry Anne Hathaway. It has been suggested that Shakespeare, at the age of 18, was forced to marry Anne, since their first child, Susanna, was born about six months later. In 1585, Anne gave birth to twins, a boy (Hamnet) and a girl (Mabillard)

in shakespeares time they married by the parents choice not there own most of the time and they married at such a young age as well


i knew that shakespeare was married an had kids but i didnt know that he was married and had kids at such a young age.

i wonder id his kid hamnet was an insparated name for hamilton one of shakes spears famouse plays


Shakespeare is considered the greatest writer of the Elizabethan period, but he outlasted Elizabeth herself. In 1603, Queen Elizabeth I died and passed the throne to her cousin, James VI of Scotland. As king of England he was known as King James I (and sponsored the translation of the King James Bible). A great lover of theater, James gave the Lord Chamberlain’s Men a license to change its name to the King’s Men. In return, the company entertained for the royal court on a regular basis. This marked an upturn in the company’s theatrical success. It soon leased an indoor theater, called Blackfriars, where it could perform year-round. Not only was this period a great time for the King’s Men, it was also a time of incredible success for Shakespeare as a writer. He wrote some of his greatest plays during this period. Between 1599 and 1608 Shakespeare wrote "Much Ado about Nothing,("William")

when after the queen died her cousin became king and was a king of theater and changed lords chamberlains men to the kings men. that is amazing how much attention had with his plays.


this fits with what i know with shakespeares popularity and his he got big enough to get the attention of the king.

i wonder if he had a friend ship with the king and if he performed in the kings home. i could check up on this topic if i research about the kings relationship with shakespeare

Shakespeare was trying to impress the Earl and secure his financial support. The plan obviously worked. By the time the second poem was published, the Earl of Southampton was Shakespeare’s patron.("William")

shakespeare tried hard to have earl start do donate money to him and just support him in his financial problems.


this fits with with what i know because i knew shakespeare had to have support of something because the plays costed a bit of money

i wonder how much money he gave shakespeare and what type of friend ship they had.


In 1607, Shakespeare’s daughter Susanna got married, and in 1608, his mother died. Shakespearean scholars often consider 1608 as the beginning of a new period in Shakespeare’s life(Mabillard)

shakespeares dauter is getting married and his mother died a year later.


i Knew his mother died but i didnt know she died a year later after his daughter got married.

I wonder how many emotions were going through shakespears head and if he ever thought about ending his life after.

SHAKESPEARE seems to have always had one foot in Stratford. Even while living mainly in London, his wife and children were always in Stratford.(Mabillard)

sheakespeare was in the middle of both citys while his wife and children were always stratford.


This fits with what i know because i knew shakesspeare was always in between.

i wonder if shakespeare lived a double life because he lived in between citys
