A portrait of Shakespeare.
Shakespeare is a famous English poet and playwright who lived from 1564-1616 and produced countless sonnets and plays.
A famous English playwright who wrote Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet is an example of Shakespeare.
- As with Shakespeare and Beethoven, the day will never come when we can measure the influence of so vast a mind upon the history of art.
- Nor could Shakespeare have failed to bring out with greater variety and distinctness the dramatic features in Henry VII., whom Ford depicts with sufficient distinctness to give some degree of individuality to the figure, but still with a tenderness of touch which would have been much to the credit of the dramatist's skill had he been writing in the Tudor age.
- As high a degree of originality may be shown in transformation as in invention, as Moliere and Shakespeare have proved in the region of dramatic art.
- Shakespeare remains so popular because he wrote about timeless human experiences: love and fear and envy, anger and revenge and jealousy, ambition and regret and guilt.
- The principal modern monument to the poet's memory in Stratford is the Shakespeare Memorial, a semi-Gothic building of brick, stone and timber, erected in 1877 to contain a theatre, picture gallery and library.
