Wisdom from William Shakespeare

| Disqus Comments

June 11th, I posted to The Word Guild blog as I do once a month. Here is the first bit of my post:

In his time, William Shakespeare, poet and playright, knew a thing or two about the stage, but his work covered many areas of life. Biography.com says "over the course of 20 years, Shakespeare wrote plays that capture the complete range of human emotion and conflict."

Besides his plays, poems and sonnets, other official documentation of his life come from church and court records. Of his education, there is little information, leaving historians to surmise where he attended school, and others to doubt how he could write so prolifically and so well.There were other historians who supposed his works to be the product of other men.Yet the grammar schools at the time taught about the arts, so he may have had a good educational base. Sources that affirmed his work included the Queen's court where Shakespeare and his fellows performed.
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts
His acts being seven ages.
