William Shakespeare (1564-1616) is widely considered the world's greatest dramatist and is often referred to as England's national poet or the Bard. Most famous for his timeless plays, he also wrote a multitude of poems and sonnets. Shakespeare was the blockbuster writer of his day, his many works concerning universal themes of life, love, death, revenge, grief, jealousy, murder, magic, and mystery. Among some of his most famous are ”Macbeth”, ”Romeo and Juliet”, and ”Hamlet”, but the list is long, and many continue to be studied and performed, both their original form and modern adaptations.
