William Shakespeare (christened 26 April 1564 - died 23 April 1616) was an English leethwriter and playwright wide thought as the best writer of the English tung, and as the world's foremost playwright. He was born in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon. He wrote many nameknown plays and is thought by many to be the best writer ever to have lived. In his lifetime, his writings were played at the Globe Theatre (Anglish: World Playhall), which he owned.
