Life Of Shakespeare
Brendan Nielsen P.8
My topic is about the life of Shakespeare. I chose my three subtopics to be Growing Up, What He Did In Life, and After Death Legacy. You will learn more about Shakespeare than you ever thought you would.
Fact 1
Growing Up
Shakespeare was born in the year of 1564, in the Henley Street House in Stratford-upon-Avon ( a market town in Warwickshire, England). His father's name was John, a glove maker, and his mother's name was Mary, daughter of a wealthy local landowner.
Fact 2
Growing Up
Shakespeare's birthday is celebrated April 23, 1564. The same day as his death date, April 23, 1616. We do not know when exactly he was born but that is the day we celebrate it. He was 52 when he died.
Fact 3
Growing up
As a child you were looked at as a miniature adult. This so called child needed to be trained and taught to work in the adult world. As long as you were unmarried you were a child, thus meaning once you get married you are an adult.
Fact 4
What He Did In Life
During Shakespeare's life he had three known jobs. He first worked for his dad helping him with gloves. Then when he grew up he became an actor. This would help him succeed at his next job which was when he decided to be a play writer.
Fact 5
What He Did In Life
In the time span of 1585-1592, no one knows what Shakespeare did. These are the lost years of William Shakespeare. What we do know is that in 1592 Shakespeare left his home town in search for a career in London.
Fact 6
What He Did In Life
On November 27, 1582, at the age of 18, William married Anne Hathaway. With her he had three children, Susanna, Hamnet, and Judith. Sadly Hamnet died as a child at the age of 11.
Fact 7
What He Did In Life
As you should know Shakespeare was an amazing play writer. The major genres of his plays were tragedies, comedies, and histories. In these plays he used the art of love, ambition, and jealousy. This is part of the reason his plays were so popular.
Fact 8
After Death Legacy
Some of William Shakespeare's most famous/popular plays are Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, Titus Andronicus, and Romeo And Juliet. These plays have some of the best well known quotes. These plays were still extremely popular 400 years after Shakespeare's death, and still are today.
Fact 9
After Death Legacy
Shakespeare plays have inspired others to create films, plays, and books. Over 300 films and movies have been made from Shakespeare's major plays. This makes him the most performed, printed and translated play writer ever in history.
Fact 10
After Death Legacy
Shakespeare had a huge influence on our language from his time to the present. He created words that we still use today. Just a few of these words being outbreak, importantly, traditional, accused, and many more. Just think that without Shakespeare, how different would our language be.
