In 1582 Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, eight years his senior and pregnant at the time of the marriage. They had three children: Susanna, born in 1583, and twins, Hamnet and Judith, born in 1585. Nothing is known of the period between the birth of the twins and Shakespeare's emergence as a playwright in London (William).

The baptismal register of the Holy Trinity parish church, in Stratford, shows the following entry for April 26, 1564: Gulielmus filius Johannes Shakespeare. The actual date of Shakespeare's birth is not known, but, traditionally, April 23, St George's Day, has been Shakespeare's accepted birthday, and a house on Henley Street in Stratford, owned by William's father, John, is accepted as Shakespeare's birth place (Mabillar).

I learned that rich people back then did not know the exact birthdate.

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. No letters or documents record how England’s most celebrated dramatist and poet felt at the time, but perhaps some of his grief can be detected in King John (written later in 1596), in the words he gave Lady Constance, a mother frantic at the loss of her son, Arthur (Ravilious).

I Learned that the after shakespeare's play; Romeo and Juliet, that his son Hamnet died.

Henley, W. E. "Shakespeare," Views and Reviews, 1890, pp. 101–03. Quoted as "Shakespeare" in Heims, Neil, ed. William Shakespeare

Shakespeare and Rembrandt have in common the faculty of quickening speculation and compelling the minds of men to combat and discussion. About the English poet a literature of contention has been in process of accretion ever since he was discovered to be Shakespeare (Henley).

I learned that the stories that shakespeare made were very complex,vivid, and forceful.

During most of Shakespeare’s lifetime, England was ruled by Queen Elizabeth I. Her reign is often called the Elizabethan Age. Shakespeare’s works reflect the cultural, social, and political conditions of the Elizabethan Age (Lander).

I learned that when shakespeare was alive, most of it was was ruled by queen elizabeth and was known as the elizabethan age.

Shakespeare bestrides the world like a literary Colossus, his work so rich with timeless situations, of love and loss, power and pride, families and friendship; he is simply the most performed playwright (William)

I learned that shakespeare work was very important to him and he is most likely the most performed playwright.

Scholars do not know exactly what Shakespeare wrote. With the possible exception of a short passage from Sir Thomas More, no manuscripts in Shakespeare’s handwriting exist. Thus, editors have had to sort through the early printed documents to determine what was written by Shakespeare (Lander)

I learned that shakespeare's writing is still unknown to this day, and there is no manuscript in shakespeare's handwriting.

Shakespeare's middle life

I learned that throughout shakespeare's plays, he puts puns and joking and sarcasm as a images and vivid metaphors.

Henry Clay Folger, a former president of the Standard Oil Company of New York, founded the library in 1930. He left his fortune for the trustees of Amherst College to administer toward the development of a great research library (Folger).

I learned that back then, Henry Clay was a former president of the standard oil company.

William Shakespeare’s mother was born Mary Arden. She was the daughter of a farmer but related to a family of considerable social standing in the county. John Shakespeare married Mary Arden about 1557 (Lander).

My Ideas:

I learned that William Shakespeare's family was mostly farmers and both considered social standing in the county.

Quote:

By 1592, Shakespeare apparently attracted the hostile attention of a jealous rival. Robert Greene was a university-trained writer who was among the first to attempt to make a career of writing for the stage and the commercial press. Greene’s Groats-Worth of Wit Bought with a Million of Repentance, a pamphlet published after Greene’s death in 1592, contains a harsh reference to Shakespeare (Lander).

My Ideas:

I learned that when shakespeare was first starting his career, he already had competition/ a rival so early.
