William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford and was baptized a few days after his birth on April 16, 1564. His father, John, was a glove maker, and his mother, Mary Arden, was the daughter of a well known landowner.

He is one of the most famous playwrights, and his plays are studied around the world. Shakespeare wrote "A Mid Dummer's Night," "Taming of the Shrew," "Winter's Tale," "Hamlet," "MacBeth," and "Romeo and Juliet."

The setting of this play is Verona, Italy. Juliet, 13, is a Capulet, and Romeo, a fews older, a Montague. Their families have a rivalry, therefore they can't be together. This is where "star-crossed lovers" originated.

Shakespeare wrote this play. It was first performed in 1594-1595 and published in 1597. It was besed off of Arthur Broke's "Romeus and Juliet."
