The Globe Theater


"Shakespeare's plays are still produced all over the world" (Anderson 8).

William Shakespeare encouraged all sorts of individuals of other generations with his plays. They have such a great meaning and influence people to carry on his legacy.

"Shakespeare was the ultimate professional writer. He had a theater that needed plays, actors who needed parts, and a family that needed to be fed" (Anderson 4).

Shakespeare was the greatest writer in history. He made a huge impact on the literature world. His poems effected people on different levels for each individual.

"Romeo and Juliet was probably among the early plays that Shakespeare wrote between 1594 and 1956" (Anderson 7).

His earlier play, become one of his many most famous plays. Romeo and Juliet was a tragic love story that was brilliantly written. It became a sort of "role model" for other writers to be able to write like Shakespeare.

"In spite of the long hours he spent in school, Shakespeare's boyhood was probably not all boring study...... -For young Shakespeare, Stratford could thus have been an exciting place to live" (Shakespeare 17).

Being the great writer he is, Shakespeare's life could wrongly be assumed that is not fun. Writing is hard work and dedication. But, living in Stratford and being that creative. It must have works out pretty well.

"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" (William 1).

William Shakespeare was very skilled in education, especially grammar. This was a huge value in his success in the literature world. His skills are the very reason he is known as the best writer in the history.


"It is to Wanamaker's credit that when he built the Globe , despite the nay-sayers, he also made provision for a second indoor theater to present some of the more intimate plays of the period."

The second theater was meant to be a place to represent the intimacy of the present plays of the time. The scene of the Globe brought the whole purpose of his vision together.

"It is important that we understand Shakespeare's theater because it influenced how he wrote his plays" (Anderson 1).

The whole meaning of the theater is to show the importance and true understanding of Shakespeare's poems and plays. The way the actors performed resembled the vision he had.

"As we have seen, by 1594,William Shakespeare was an established dramatist on the London stage. But the first of his works to appear in print was not a play but the 1194-line narrative poem Venus and Adonis. The official Stationers' Register enters the publication on April 18,1593" (Baker 30).

Shakespeare has come a long way to make his plays become something huge in the so called, "drama world". His plays are significant and impressive.

"Plays were originally performed by all-male medieval trade guilds, so all women's parts were paid by boys. It would be many years before women appeared on stage in the professional English theater" (Anderson 7).

Males were the main role and focus of these medieval plays. They were the only actors who were "allowed" to perform. It did indeed take years for women to be able to act.


"Shakespeare died on April 23, 1616, at the age of fifty-two. He is buried under the old stone floor in the chancel of Holy Trinity Church in Stratford" (Anderson 9).

Shakespeare was a huge help to the literature world. His poems and such set an example of what real writing truly is, it gave others and even people in the present a reference of what amazing writing looks like.
