6. Some people think he was a fraud.
Macbeth deserves its place on this list because it is “tightly written”. Short, punchy and intense, this play follows the rise and fall of Macbeth from soldier to King to tyrant.
He marries the twenty-six year- old maid, Anna Hathaway, when he was eighteen. She was three months pregnant on her wedding day. Her parents were dead and she lived with her brother in the family home, where William visited her. We can see, then, that young Will does as any seven year-old boy, given the chance; he hurries to this older woman's cottage to spend a rainy day with her!
Much Ado About Nothing is Shakespeare’s most loved comedy. The play mixes comedy and tragedy, and is therefore one of the Bard’s most interesting texts from a stylistic point of view.
Shakespeare is perhaps most famous for Romeo and Juliet, the classic story of two “star-crossed lovers”. This play has seeped into the consciousness of popular culture: if we describe someone as romantic, we might describe him as “a Romeo”, and the balcony scene is possibly the world’s most recognized (and quoted) dramatic text.
