Shakespeare

William Shakespeare is considered by many to be the greatest writer in the English language in history. During his life he composed plays, sonnets and other poems, many of which are still studied in schools today. Shakespeare is renowned for his expansive vocabulary (many of the words he used were his own creations) and for the artistry of his writing, since his plays were often written in iambic pentameter and sometimes rhymed. His work can be difficult to read on its own, but with these resources you may begin to understand the works of the Bard.
