Williams 1 T.J. Williams Mrs. Schofield. English 9H December 19, 2012 Edward de Vere and the fame he deserves. For many decades, Shakespeare is known to be the greatest authors ever to walk on earth. All of his work is well known by many people all around. With every legend, there is always is theory, did shakespeare really write all of his work?
(C) Delete “Many”. (D) Change the period to a comma, add “and,” and combine sentences 1 and 2. (E) Change “him” to "Marlowe". 38. (1) Christopher Marlowe was a well-known and respected playwright during the time of William Shakespeare.
Nathanael’s literary style and theme of his stories were passionate romanticism and mainly dark romanticism. The spectacular author had many amazing works and so many popular books. One of his greatest works was The Scarlet Letter (1850) and Twice-Told Tales (1837). Edgar Allan Poe once said, "The style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth".
It is especially known for one of its greatest authors, William Shakespeare. Although his poems were good, his plays are what he is mostly remembered for; he wrote forty plays including The Two Noble Kinsmen and the two lost plays attributed to him.

I am writing this essay on the similarities and differences of Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare and To His Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell. Shakespeare is overall explaining that love lasts forever, and nothing can change it. He also applies that they have all the time they want together. Sonnet 116 was written the fifteenth century, in the time where divorce didn’t really happen often. This may be why this poem is written like it is, compared to poetry written years after this.
In addition, similarly to Sonnet 18, Juliet’s words suggest that there is something eternal and everlasting about Romeo’s beautiful personality, hence the demand for him to be transformed into a star. Although Shakespeare was writing more than four hundred years ago, modern culture shows a similar idealisation of love and beauty. For example, James Blunt’s famous, best –selling song ‘You’re Beautiful’ , focuses on physical beauty, and also contains the metaphorical line’ I saw an angle’ implying that true beauty can have a spiritual dimension.

Back at the Globe Theater, the peasents came to watch Shakespeare's plays as well as the wealthy nobles.

Hamlet's Soliloquy - To be, or not to be Hamlet's "To be, or not to be" soliloquy is arguably the most famous soliloquy in the history of the theatre. Even today, 400 years after it was written, most people are vaguely familiar with the soliloquy even though they may not know the play. What gives these 34 lines such universal appeal and recognition? What about Hamlet's introspection has prompted scholars and theatregoers alike to ask questions about their own existence over the centuries? In this soliloquy, Shakespeare strikes a chord with a fundamental human concern: the validity and worthiness of life.
