Transcript of Shakespeare
Comedy Vs. Tragedy
Why this is My Favorite Poem
In the poem Sonnet 18 William Shakespeare expresses the message of immortality through imagery and figurative languadge. The beautiful woman described in the poem was being compared to different aspects of a summer day. "So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. " This line is symbolic of the woman's never fading beauty in the sonnet. The line states as long as the sonnet was read, her beauty would be appreciated forever.
Many scolars that study Shakespeare's work argue that he is an equally good Tragedy playwright as a Comedy one. One of his greatest, most widely known Tragedy works is; Romeo and Juliette. Shakespeare's works are worth reading about because he gives scholars a look at the old English commonly used in the 16th century, and their lifestyles too.

My Favorite Poem
William Shakespeare was born in 1564, exactly what day is uncertain, perhaps April 23, in Stratford-upon-Avon in the United Kingdom. He was born into a family of two. His parents were; John Shakespeare, a glove maker and businessman, and Mary Shakespeare, inheritant of her father's farm, and the house's mother figure. He was one of 8 children, two died in infancy, and one (7 years old) from the Plague. After the latter's funeral, the Shakespeares were down on finances, which overall caused William to stop his education. In 1578 at the age of fourteen, he seized his schooling at; The Stratford Grammatical School, which he had been attending from the age of about 6 or 7, to support his family.
He worked as a poet and playwright for the rest of his days. He passed away in 1616 of unknown causes.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st;
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Shakespeare died in the same place he was born; Stratford-upon-Avon, in 1616 and was buried in the Church of the Holy Trinity, Stratford-upon-Avon.
Born in Stratford-upon-Avon sometime in 1564, to his parents; Joan and Mary Shakespeare.

Hobbies: school, swimming, reading, and technology
Shakespeare's poetry and plays entartained people, and gave them inspiration.
How did Their Poetry Contribute to Society?
I chose Shakespeare as my poet because no one else was doing him and I thought he sounded intriguing. I love his works, and have started reading a book of his complete works. I also chose him instead of another poet because his is the second on the list of top 500 poets of all time. This is why I decided to do William Shakespeare as my poet.
