Born in Stratford-upon-Avon in the English Midlands, William Shakespeare made his name as an actor and playwright in 16th century London. Despite being criticized by his early contemporaries for his lack of a university education, Shakespeare's incredible output quickly hurtled him to prominence. A largely anonymous playwright in 1592, by 1598 he was a celebrated name in London drama circles. Now, some four centuries later, Shakespeare's indelible mark on our culture can still be seen in literature, theaters, cinemas and on television screens all over the world. Even our very speech still bears his fingerprints. It is estimated that Shakespeare invented over 1700 new words during his career, most of which are still in use today.
Exploring everything from his monumental oeuvre, to the mysterious and sometimes murky details of his remarkable life, and his ongoing influence on contemporary art and culture, this wonderfully curated guide to the immortal bard shows us why Shakespeare is still such an indispensable part of our lives.
