“These violent delights have violent ends…”
Born in 1564, William Shakespeare is regarded as the greatest writer to ever write in the English language, and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist. Often called England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon”, Shakespeare’s influence on the English language and on literature itself has lasted centuries. Shakespeare helped shape the English we use today, introducing up to 300 words and dozens of well-known phrases (“green-eyed jealousy”, “tongue-tied” and “hoodwinked”).
