Around and About Shakespeare
You might of heard of Shakespeare in the past. You may have heard about his usage of strange words or his creative playwright, but there is more to that than creativity. So let me tell you a little more about his life.
On april 26, 1564 Shakespeare was born in Stratford-Upon Avon England. His father, John, a merchant and alderman, and Mary Shakespeare baptized their first born son, William. When William was 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who was eight more years older than william. A daughter, Susanna, was born less than seven months later in May 1583. Twins Hamnet and Judith followed in February 1585. Susanna and Judith would live to old age, while Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died at 11. Shakespeare set off for london. He arrived in the early 1580’s where he got a job working for a company, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men(“Shakespeare history”).
