Editorial Reviews

“A captivating rendition, courtly enough in its tone and design to allay traditionalist carping, yet energetic, full-blooded, and in no way hidebound.” OregonLive on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s theatrical production of Romeo and Juliet

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
