in the Elizabethan era
Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the
Lord Chamberlain's Men
, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613 at age 49, where he died three years later.

These include, but are not limited to; "seen better days," "strange bedfellows," "a sorry sight," and "full circle." Shakespeare's effect on vocabulary is rather astounding when considering how much language has changed since his lifetime.
