William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare is an English writer, poet and dramatist. he is regarded by millions as the greatest writer in the English language. Shakespeare is the father of modern literature. He is widely known for writing the famous play Romeo and Juliet and that’s not even his best work. For those who don’t know this monumental figure, go read Julius Caesar, Macbeth, and Hamlet. After reading that I bet you will still want to read more of his writings. He is the kind of writer who can attract a reader within the starting pages of his novel and plays. I like Shakespeare’s dramas but his Romantic Comedies are the best from my view. Twelfth Night and Midsummer Nights Dream are two of my favorite book. He always creates this epic characters that captivate the reader’s mind. I’ve read a lot of his books and I’m totally hypnotized by his literature. Even his tragedies are super cool.

William Shakespeare Biography

Most of his writings are used as story material for films and i hope they keep making more. I like the film version of Twelfth Night, the film was titled “She’s the Man”. I urge everyone to watch the movie its awesome. His play Romeo and Juliet is the greatest dialogue and pickup line for couples young and old alike. When parents don’t allow their kids choice of partner and kids go on to say they are like romeo and Juliet. To which the parents reply, “Do you know what happened to them? They died a tragic death.” Its a sick joke but i find it funny. Kids who wants to become a writer in future better read his works very carefully and learn everything they can from his writings.
