William Shakespeare

I am not worthy of the wealth I owe, nor dare I say 'tis mine, and yet it is; but, like a timorous thief, most fain would steal what law does vouch mine own.
William Shakespeare quote


The most famous English playwright of all time, 1564 - 1616. He wrote a large number of plays in different genres, such as comedies, tragedies, histories and of course romances. Some of his work is still regularly studied in classrooms to this day so his influence is enduring; for instance Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth are still commonly studied. His longest play was Hamlet which many consider to be the greatest play of all time. His influence on the English language was immense with a surprisingly high number of words tracing their origin to his work, as indeed do many phrases. His mind was clearly very productive and his command for story telling and commenting on humans and humanity meant his stories have reached through the ages even if the language now is difficult to understand. For many he is the greatest writer that has ever lived.
