William Shakespeare's Accomplishments

William Shakespeare had many accomplishments.From 1594 to 1608, he worked for the London Theater World.In this theater,they played some of his plays like Hamlet,Romeo and Juliette,and Richard The Third.All of those plays were only Tragedies.They also played one that was comedy, it was named The Midsummer Night's Dream.When it was 1609,he made and published 154 sonnet's,126 sonnet's were concentrated by a young noble man.Another 26 were concentrated by a woman.After his death on April 23,1616,his folio was published by his friend's.This folio was included by his 154 sonnet's,37 plays and 2 long poem's.What William Shakespeare also did is invented and changed words.He made up spelling and a lyrical language.The vocabulary that he invented is still being used.

My Reflection

What inspired me about William Shakespeare is that he accomplished all of his hopes and dreams.And that he always never gives up and never let ANYBODY make fun of him.Because when a playwright told people that he borrow and didn't really makes his own plays.And that he stood up to him and told him that he does make his own plays.Also that it was really weird that when he got married,he was 18 and Anne Hathaway was 26.But what also inspired me about him is that also that makes his own ideas and always do the right thing.It was alot of work of finding information about William Shakespeare.But in the end,I found information about my person.

William Shakespeare's Death and Burial

In 1610,William Shakespeare retired from work and went back to Stratford.When he died at his birthday on April 23,1616,he was buried in The Church of the Holy Trinity on April 25John Aubrey, an English antiquarian, wrote about Shakespeare 65 years after the poet's death. He evidently used information furnished by the son of one of Shakespeare's fellow actors. He described him as a handsome, well-shaped man, very good company, and of a ready and pleasant smooth wit.But in 1623,Anne Hathaway dies.
