Shakespeare's Writing Days
William Shakespeare was the most influential writer in literature history. In the beginning of his career, he wrote romance and comedies. Then as he got more experienced, he started writing more complex pieces. He showed off his talent making unique characters and plots that made his readers want more (Boyce1). Through Shakespeare's writing career, he wrote different themes from romance, to murder incorporating politics. He wrote tragedies such as King Lear and Macbeth. Both of these tragic stories are about national leaders who lose their minds. Other stories such as Anthony and Cleopatra and Hamlet are said to be his greatest writings about military men or royalty who are self-destructive, despite their honorability (Cook1). Shakespeare's way of completely changing genres is truly one of a kind, and very rare.
