The Life of Shakespeare

" Break a Leg"

William Shakespeare

He was born on April 23, 1564 and died in April 23, 1616 and was the third of eight children. Shakespeare's parents were probably illiterate, and his children almost certainly were. He left school at the age of 14 or 15 and few years after he married Anne Hathaway. We probably don't spell Shakespeare's name correctly but, then again, neither did he.
