Gros plan sur... William Shakespeare
> I was born at Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564. I was the son of a tradesman and alderman of Stratford, John Shakespeare. I was the eldest son, and third child (of eight).
> I began writing plays in 1595. 'Love's Labour's Lost' and 'The Comedy of Errors' were the first plays I wrote. They were followed by 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Richard III', 'The Taming of the Shrew', 'The Merchant of Venice', 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', 'All's Well that Ends Well', 'Much Ado about Nothing', 'As you like it', 'Twelfth Night', 'Hamlet', 'Othello', 'Macbeth', 'King Lear', 'A Winter's Tale', 'The Tempest', and more...
> When I retired from writing in 1611, I returned to Stratford to live in a house which I had built for my family.
> In 1616 I was buried in the Church of the Holy Trinity the same Church where I was baptised in 1564. Tradition has it that I died after an evening's drinking with some of my theatre friends.
