Playwright William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare

English playwright and poet William Shakespeare is recognized in much of the world as the greatest of all dramatists. Hundreds of editions of his plays have been published, including translations in all major languages. Scholars have written thousands of books and articles about his plots, characters, themes and language. He is the most widely quoted author in history, and his plays have probably been performed more times than those of any other dramatist. Shakespeare’s plays include comedies (A Midsummer Night’s Dream and As You Like It), histories (Richard III) and tragedies (Hamlet and Macbeth). His other works include Othello, Measure for Measure, King Lear, Twelfth Night and more than 150 sonnets.
