William Shakespeare, Robert Burns


William Shakespeare


William Shakespeare is the world's greatest poet and dramatist. Every

Englishman knows more or less the works of his country's greatest poet.

Words and phrases from Shakespeare's writings have become part of the

English language and are used by all.


Shakespeare made fuller use of the English language than any other

writer. There is no better way for a foreigner or an Englishman to

understand the richness of the English language than by studying

how Shakespeare used it.


The last half of the 16th century and the beginning of the 17th century

are sometimes called the age of Shakespeare. By that time England had

become a powerful state, but there was not much change for the better in

the life of the English people and the power of money grew stronger.


Shakespeare saw these contrasts and showed them in his works. Although

the name of William Shakespeare is well-known in the world we know very

little about his life. He was born on April 23, 1564 in

Stratford-upon-Avon. His mother, Mary Arden, was a daughter of Robert

Arden, a farmer. His father, John Shakespeare, was a glover who had an

office at Stratford-upon-Avon.


Little is known about William's childhood. He got his education at the

Grammar School. He got married in 1582 to Anne Hathaway and had three

children, a boy and two girls.


William lived in Stratford until he was about twenty-one, when he went

to London. There is a story that Shakespeare's first work in London was

holding rich men's horses at the theatre door. But nobody can say

whether this story is true.


Later, Shakespeare became an actor and a member of one of the big

acting companies. Soon he began to write plays for this company and

in a few years became a well-known author.


Shakespeare's work as an actor (although he usually acted only small

parts) helped him greatly in the writing of his plays. He knew the stage

and that helped him to write the most wonderful plays ever written.


Shakespeare wrote 37 plays. Among them are tragedies such as Hamlet,

King Lear, Othello, Macbeth; comedies such as The Merry Wives of

Windsor, All's Well_ That Ends Well, Twelfth Night, Much Ado About

Nothing; historical dramas such as Henry IV, Richard III.


Shakespeare spent the last years of his life at Stratford, where he died

in 1616, He was buried in the church of Stratford. A monument was built

to him in the Poet's Corner in Westminster Abbey.


Shakespeare was a great humanist. He believed in man and wished to make

life better for the people of his country.


Marx and Engels not only loved Shakespeare greatly, but studied his

works. They pointed out the popular character of his art, and the way in

which he showed the development of life.


Pushkin and the Russian revolutionary democrats spoke highly of

Shakespeare as one of the greatest poets in the world.




Robert Burns was born in the north of Scotland. His father William was a
