Quote:

"William Shakespeare was born in the small market town of Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564, the third of eight children. The register of Holy Trinity, the parish church in Stratford, records his baptism on April 26. According to the custom at that time, infants were baptized about three days after their birth. Therefore, the generally accepted date for Shakespeare’s birth is April 23."(Lander)

My Ideas:

Shakespeare was born into a big family. Since he was baptized on April 26 he was born on April 23. He didn't live in a big city. He was born in a small town.

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. 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."

My Ideas:

Shakespeare was in the more advanced schools and classes when he was only 7 years old. He also lived under strict conditions and rules. If anyone broke those rules they would be physically punished.

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. Such a theory was encouraged by the presence in the play of passages that sound like a farewell to the stage."

My Ideas:

Shakespeare was the sole author of only three plays---Cymbeline, The Tempest, and the Winter's Tale. He has made a lot of progress through his life that everyone will remember.

Quote:

"By 1612, Shakespeare had become England’s most successful playwright. He apparently divided his time between Stratford and London. He had lodgings in London at least until 1604 and probably until 1611. Such family events as his daughter Susanna’s marriage in 1607 and his mother’s death in 1608 would likely have called him back to Stratford. By 1612, he may have spent much of his time in the comforts of New Place in Stratford."

My Ideas:

Shakespeare was England's most successful playwright. William deserves a lot of respect for the work he has done through his lifetime.

Quote:

"On Nov. 27, 1582, Shakespeare received a license to marry Anne Hathaway, the daughter of a local farmer. The two families knew each other, but the details of the relationship between William and Anne have been a source of speculation. At the age of 18, William was young to marry, while Anne at 26 was of normal marrying age. The marriage appears to have been hurried, and the birth of their first child, Susanna, in May 1583 came only six months after marriage."

My Ideas:

William was still fairly young to marry Anne, He was 18 and she was in her late 20's . Scholars claim that Their marriage was rushed after the couple had their first child, Susanna 6 months after their marriage.

Quote:

"Some scholars have suggested that William may have been forced to marry Anne because she was pregnant. However, birth and marriage records indicate that many women in England at that time were already pregnant before they married, and so Shakespeare’s marriage was not unusual."

My Ideas:

William and Anne's marriage was rushed quite a bit before their marriage. Their relationship and marriage was not normal or common.

Shakespeare was still very young to marry Anne Hathaway. Although, it seemed as if their marriage was hurried after their marriage six months after their marriage they had their first child, Susanna, in May 1583.

Remembering Shakespeare

Quote:

"Shakespeare’s son, Hamnet, died in 1596 at the age of 11. The playwright’s daughter Susanna had one child, Elizabeth, who bore no children. Shakespeare’s daughter Judith gave birth to three boys, but they died before she did. Shakespeare’s last direct descendant, his granddaughter Elizabeth, died in 1670."

My Ideas:

After Shakespeare's death most of his family died not too long after that. William has made so much progress through his life that has made and impact on people's lives today.

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."

My Ideas:

Shakespeare's fame and reputation grew more and more through the years. His fame got so big that he was not of a writer he was an unequaled genius.
