William Shakespeare Carry out: pupil 8B class Yaroslavtseva Olga
William Shakespeare Some years later Shakespeare began to write plays. The parents did not even guess that their son would be such an important figure in English poetry and drama and that his plays would still be acted four hundred years later in England and all over the world. By 1592 Shakespeare was an important member of well-known company. In 1599 the famous Globe Theatre was built on the south bank of the river Thames. In that theatre most of his plays were performed. It was a round building with the stage in the center, open to the sky. If it was raining, the actors got wet; if the weather was too bad, there was no performance at all. By 1630 Shakespeare was the leading poet and dramatist of his time. He continued to write for the next ten years. In 1613 he finally stopped writing and went to live in Stratford where he died in 1616. He is buried in Stratford-on-Avon. William Shakespeare was born in April 1564. His father was a rich citizen whose business was making and selling leather gloves. His mother was the daughter of an important farmer. When he was nineteen, William married Anne. She was a farmer’s daughter and she was some years older than himself. During that year he may have helped his father in the family business or he may have been a country schoolmaster for a time, we don’t know exactly. Shakespeare had three children: Susannah, eldest, then twins – a son, Hamnet, and another girl, Judith. In 1587 Shakespeare went to work in London, leaving Anne and the children at home.
«Romeo and Juliett» «But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the East, and Juliet is the sun! Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief That thou her maid art far more fair than she.»
«Mariana» «I want you to stop talking. You always lie like a newspaper-it doesn't matter what sort of tale you tell, no one's going to believe you. »
«Ophelia» «Мой милый гений, этот век жесток. Невольно все мы пленники прогресса, Не видящие в двух березках леса, Не слышащие в трех аккордах рок.»
«Hamlet» «Быть иль не быть - вот в этом вопрос; что лучше для души – терпеть пращи и стрелы яростного рока или, на море бедствий ополчившись покончить с ними?»
