Everything I know about Shakespeare is not much. I know that we was an extraordinary writer and that is what he is famous for. His work is very meaningful and he wanted the people to think. Most of his plays were tragedies. He lived a long time ago and was married to a woman named Anne Hathaway. One of his most famous plays is Hamlet. Some people find him very boring and you have to appreciate his writing method to like his work. Many of his plays are famous, and Hamlet was written after his son dies. The only reason I know all this is because in drama we learned about him. You have most likely heard of at least one of his plays, if not more. He was born very long ago in the 1500s and died around the early 1600s. I have not read any of his plays but actually would like too since hes considered one of the greatest writers in English history.
