Text William Shakeseare

Great Britain is known for its poets, writers and singers. It gave birth to such famous people as William Shakeseare, Robert Burns, Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, Alexander Bell, Princess Diana and others. The Beatles group was also founded in Britain. I would like to tell you about some of Britains outstanding people.

William Shakeseare, the greatest dramatist and writer, was born in Stratford upon-Avon in 1565. His father was a glover and his mother was the daughter of a famous farmer. Shakeseare went to grammar school, but he never entered any university. He is famous for his great tragedies including Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth and the best known love story in the world Romeo and Juliet.

Many well-known sayings come from his works, and Shakeseare also had a great influence on English literature and the language. His plays are studied by British schoolchildren as part of their school programme.

Shakeseares works are known for their beautiful language and for the understanding of how people think and feel.

William Shakeseare also wrote poetry, including the sonnets. He worked as an actor and a playwright at the Globe Theatre in London, which has recently been rebuilt as a copy of the original theatre.

Shakeseare married once and had three children. After his death in 1616 his house in Stratford became a museum and now it is a popular place with tourists. Shakeseares plays were stages in many theatres and translated into numerous languages. They are still read and loved by many people.
