Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright. He was the figure of Renaissance literature. This man wrote 37 plays total, from 1590-1613. They are still performed around the world to this day. Many of his works are romances, and some of them are comedies. William had over 1,700 words appearing for the first time in his works as well.
Who Was William Shakespeare?
Romeo And Juliet
1590-1613 Shakespeare Writes 37 plays
My greatest achievement included making 37 magnificent plays. The one I'm holding is Romeo And Juliet, a classic. It is about two teenagers who fall in love, but their love is disrupted by a family feud. I believe my achievement makes me a humanist because I take real life situations and add plot twists to them. Along with plot twists, I make sure an important lesson/meaning events from each of my plays.
Shakespeare A Humanist?
Humanism is the value of a person. Humanists focused on worldly subjects rather than religious issues. This study was based off of classical culture. I feel that William was a humanist overall. He wrote plays to allow others to express their feelings to the world. Shakespeare wanted others to be able to escape to a place where they could be their true selves and wash their worries away.
