He is usually termed England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon.”His actual works, including collaborations, consist of nearly 39 drams,154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other lines, some of the uncertain authorship. Shakespeare plays have been translated into every primary living language and are executed more often than those of any other playwright.

At the age of eighteen, Shakspere married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had 3 children: Susanna, twins Hamnet and Judith. Sometime between 1585 and 1592, he started a successful profession in London as an actor, author, and part-owner of a playing organization called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later recognized as the King’s Men.

At age 49, he seems to have retired to Stratford, where he died three years later. Several records of Shakespeare’s own life survive; this has stimulated significant speculation about such things as his physical features, his sexuality, his spiritual beliefs, and whether the works assigned to him were written by others. Such methods are often criticized for losing to adequately note that some records survive of most commoners of the time.

During the 20th and 21st eras, Shakespeare’s works have been frequently adapted and rediscovered by the latest movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain successful and are studied, performed, and reinterpreted through various cultural and political contexts around the world.
