William Shakespeare, who is considered as England’s national poet, is also known as the greatest dramatist of all the time. He was an English playwright, poet and actor. Since he was born in Stratford-upon Avon, England, English people take him as “Bard of Avon”. During his life, he wrote 39 plays, 154 sonnets, and few of other verses.

In the year of 1584 he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree, after that in 1587 he started writing for the theater and occasionally working in government service.
Later, he changed his writing prodigies to tragedies and calamities that include Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth. They were recognized as few of the greatest works in English literature history. During his last phase of life, he changed his literature mood to tragicomedies which are also known modernly as romances and patched up with the other playwrights (Hatchuel, 2004). During the recent era, his literature and works have been redesigned and adapted with the modern writing ways in performances. His plays, poems and serious texts have been widely famous among generations and people of every era have studied them continually.
