Contributions to the World

An original manuscript


Shakespeare was baptized April 26th 1564 in England there is not much recorded history of his early childhood but we do know that he was the oldest of 5 children. By the late 1590s he had written 15 plays and had performed in many more. A few years later he got married to Ann Hathaway and had 2 kids, one of which died at age eleven. There is not a exact death date for William, but we do know that he was in business with Francis Bacon, making his theater company bigger at the time of his death.

Francis Bacon and his legacy

Francis Bacon was a wealthy scientist and business man. He was on a business trip when he met Shakespear and made a deal with him to double his company. Sadly the next year he was working on how to preserve animals with the cold and stuffed a hen with snow. He then got a chill which led to bronchitis eventually killing him.

After Shakespear died his plays grew more and more popular and by the 1900's there was the Shakespearian style of play writing that was about dramatic love comedies. This has inspired movie directors to make motion pictures of his plays.
