    • This highly illustrated book is crammed
    with images and facts that encapsulate the
    glory of this amazing man, his life, his works
    (that include plays, poetry and sonnets), his
    language and legacy
    William Shakespeare was born April 1564 and died
    23 April 1616, four hundred years ago. Today the
    bard from Queen Elizabeth’s I’s Merrie England is
    the most-read author in the world. His works are
    truly international, with copies of plays and poetry
    by William Shakespeare exceeding four billion. He is
    among the most translated authors in history, eclipsed
    only by the Bible. Shakespeare penned some of the most
    celebrated dramas, but also added to the language,
    inventing an amazing 1,700 new words.
    His father was a glove maker, leather worker and
    wool merchant; his mother, Mary Arden, was from
    a landowning family. One of eight children, young
    Shakespeare was probably educated at the local King
    Edward VI Grammar School in Stratford but would
    eventually make his name as an actor and playwright
    in London. Now, some four centuries onward,
    Shakespeare’s writings continue to enthrall and
    enrapture audiences, to inspire and thrill, not just
    at Stratford or in London’s Globe Theatre but in every
    corner of the worldwide globe.
