Biography of William Shakespeare

The great English playwright and poet William Shakespeare was born in 1564 in Stratford-on-Avon, England. Apparently he got a decent basic education but not to stomp college. Shakespeare married at the age of eighteen (his wife twenty-six), father of three before reaching age twenty-one.

A few years later, he went to London, becomes the child stage and playwright. When reaching the age of thirty Shakespeare had already shown success. And when he stepped on his age thirty-four, he was a rich man and is considered a leading British playwright. Ten years later, he had produced great works such as Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth and King Lear.

Within twenty years that have special meanings that Shakespeare lived in London, his wife remained in Stratford. Shakespeare died in the year 1616 at about 52nd birthday. He had no living descendants.

There are 38 well-known drama of Shakespeare's creations, including some small drama that probably worked with someone else. In addition, he wrote a number of 154 sonatas and three or four long poems.

Judging from the genius of Shakespeare, the results and the fame that was already granted, what a strange impression may arise because the names were not placed in sequence over the top in this book list. I put Shakespeare is so low not because I do not appreciate the power of his art, but solely because I believe that in general literary figures or artists not have a major influence in history.

Activities of religious leaders, scientists, politicians, investigators, philosophers, the pecipta more often affects the various fields of human life. For example, advances in science have a major influence on the political and economic livelihoods, and also influence the religious beliefs, the nature of philosophical and artistic development.

However, a famous painter, although he had a major influence on other painters, not have any influence on the development of music and literature, it is said also to science, or field of inquiry. The same thing applies to areas of poetry, drama and music. As a result, in general bisalah say, the influence of artists that just touches the field of art, even confined to certain parts of the art. Therefore, no figures literature, music or other art that is placed on top of the sequence stars. 30, even just a few featured in this book.

If so, why still there are also artists that includes a list? The answer is, the pleasure of art is a direct part (though not always the main part) in an individual's life. In other words, someone could provide a portion of his time listening to music, read some books, some looked at the painting and so on. Even if we spend time listening to music had no influence on our other activities (this is certainly something to be exaggerated) after all this time remains an important thing in our lives.

Of course personal an artist could have a impact on our lives more than we spend time listening to music, read a book or enjoy their work. This is because his work has influenced so much good work of other artists whose results we like.

In some ways, more or less artistic work has philosophical meaning which can affect our attitude in another problem area. This of course occurs more often in matters pertaining to literature than to music or painting. For example, in Romeo and Juliet (Act III, scene 1) Shakespeare wrote saying the prince "Mercy but murders, pardoning Those That Kill," presents a clear idea (off the people accept it or not) who has a philosophical meaning and have more political influence than , say, looking at the painting "Mona Lisa."

Shakespeare seems no doubt surpass all literary figures. Comparatively, very few people now read Chaucer, Virgil or Homer, unless their work was finished reading the provisions of the school. However, staging a Shakespeare must be welcome. Excess Shakespeare in terms of stanzas perangkuman not really tertandingkan and sentences are often cited, even by people who never once did things to see or read his play. More than that, what a true real fame is not just passing traffic. His work presents a happiness to its readers and viewers for nearly four centuries. Because of these works has been steady time-tested, it is considered appropriate that Shakespeare's fame will continue for centuries to come.

In terms of determining the significance of Shakespeare one must take into account if he never lived in the world, his plays would never have written about at all. Of course, to some extent, a similar statement can be given to each artist or literary figures. However, that factor did not seem to have any special significance in the assessment of the weight of influence on artists of small size.

Although Shakespeare wrote in English, he's really known figures seseluruh world. If instead of a very universal language, English is the most close to that size than the other languages ​​that ever existed. After all, Shakespeare's works have been translated widely and his work read and performed in various countries.

There are of course some famous writer whose work has been criticized by art critics. Shakespeare is not the case in which his work appreciated without reserve by literary experts. Playwright generations studied his work and tried to imitate as well or mengunggulinya. The combination of a very large influence on the authors and fame are not decided at the society that puts Shakespeare in the order high enough in this book list.
