As to why William Shakespeare decided to obscure the homoeroticism in his play by giving all characters a happy ending with heterosexual marriages I do not know. Further research could involve the social tension English homosexual citizens experienced against their homosexuality. Homosexual people in England probably married others of the opposite sex just to avoid social oppression, even if it meant sacrificing their feelings. However, the real question is, why did Shakespeare make homoeroticism such an outstanding theme on As You Like It? Could it have been that Shakespeare was homosexual and felt attracted to young men, but could never practice his homosexuality because society would not let him?
He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.

Do I live dead that live to tell it now” (Shakespeare 1.1.215-216). Romeo is
William Shakespeare was characterized by the fact that he doesn’t give the public and readers and gives a clear result, but he leaves it up to the person to make his or her own opinion about the specific issue. However the characters appearing in the plays are very miscellaneous. Also their diversity gives Shakespeare 's stories ambiguity and thrill. I was also intrigued by this ambiguity of Shakespeare’s works and I wanted to express my own opinion about this matter. Furthermore Romeo and Juliet is a play about love in the midst of war.
The death of Romeo and Juliet is surrounded with a lot of controversy on who is to blame. Some speculate that Friar Lawrence or Lord Capulet is to blame. However, could it be the most unusual suspect in the entire story? Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two rival houses fall in love but were destined to die tragically from the beginning they met.
William shakespeare is an idol for most if not all english scholars, professors, and teachers. Shakespeare’s most famous fourteen comedies and twelve tragedies really outline the way modern literature is written and perceived. A lot of modern films and books are based around the same theme or plot that shakespeare introduced to theatre almost 400 years ago. Shakespeare's play The Comedy of Errors is a masterpiece due to its entertaining comedic characters throughout and the confusing, hilarious plot.

Many volumes that he wrote were also based on his live and the events he went through. Such as the poem “Virginia” he wrote after his wife’s death.

He then set out with Calvin
When Romeo is in initial shock he asks Balthasar if the Friar had sent him any letters, but as far as Romeo knows, he has not. Friar John didn’t let anyone in on the secret, even Romeo’s close friends. If it hadn’t been so urgent that the letter gets to Romeo, than Friar John could have notified some of Romeo’s friends, even had one or two go with him on his voyage instead of stopping to look for another friar. This is one small mistake that changes the plot of the play from one of a happily ever after to a tragic obliteration of two lovers’ happy

Shakespeare is said to have written a notoriously crazy amount of plays as well as sonnets in the short fifty-one years he lived. It is not confirmed that he was very well educated, if he was educated and yet his work is so enthralling. Due to these conditions the question has arisen, did Shakespeare really write anything? This question was introduced as a joke, but now has grown into something much more. There are now many alternative authors that may have paid Shakespeare to publish their work under their names.
The Truth of Shakespeare “To be, or not to be, that is the question.” One of the most famous lines from Shakespeare’s play titled Hamlet. William Shakespeare has been credited with writing a lot of famous lines, but that might not have been him.
