Shakespeares' Life

illiam Shakespeare was baptized on April 26, 1564, in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. From roughly 1594 onward he was an important member of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men company of theatrical players. Written records give little indication of the way in which Shakespeare’s professional life molded his artistry. All that can be deduced is that over the course of 20 years, Shakespeare wrote plays that capture the complete range of human emotion and conflict.

Impact on Literature

there can be no doubt that Shakespeare was a master of the artistry of the English language. He wrote with such fluidity of thought, word, rhythm, and sound that the work is presented in a complex manner, but is not unintelligible, even for the inexperienced reader. Often a single line would have several different meanings, each providing us with insight into a character or plot. For example, five lines from a scene from Richard III present much more than at first observed: Rivers. Have patience, madam; there’s no doubt his Majesty Will soon recover his accustomed health. Grey. In that you brook it ill, it makes him worse. Therefore for God’s sake entertain good comfort And cheer his Grace with quick and merry eyes. Queen Elizabeth. If [the King] were dead, what would betide on me? harms.2 (1.3.1-8)
