Transcript of All about William Shakespeare

By Rosie Hateley and Abi Harcombe William Shakespeare William Shakespeare is the most well known poet and play writer. He was born on 23rd April 1564 and baptized only 3 days after his birth.

At the age of six Shakespeare began his education at the Stratford grammar school, Between the age of 13-14 he left school due to his fathers financial and social condition, But resumed his education else where. Shakespeare's plays Quotes and there meanings Williams Childhood Events in Shakespeare's life In 1582 on November 28, William married Anne Hathwey. Unfortently they did not have a very good marriage they argued a lot and this may have resulted in his plays involving a lot of fighting and arguing.

After six months of marriage they had there first child, Susanna. After two years Anne gave birth to twins, Hamnet and Judith. We think that Hamnet could be associated to the play Hamlett.

On August 11th 1596 his son Hammet died at the age of only 11, this must have affected shakespeare a lot this may have resulted in why he wrote a lot of tragedys. "Can one desire too much of a good thing?" We think this means that if you have too much of something you can become greedy and selfish.
"Though this be madness, yet there is method in it." We think this means that what people say some people may think is mad and wrong may actually have sense behind it if you think deeper.
"What 's done is done". This means that once something has been done you can't change it and you have to face the consequences and thats why you should think about what you do first.
"But love is blind, and lovers cannot see". We think this means that if you are so in love with someone you can't really tell what they're really like and you forget about everyone else around you. All together Shakespeare wrote 37 plays, but some of them never got published, Shakespeare wrote 17 comedies, 10 historical plays and 10 tragedies.
