William Shakespeare biography :

The Bard of Avon was reputed to have been born on 23 April 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. There are no records of his birth, only that of a baptism on 26 April 1564. His parents were John Shakespeare and Mary Arden.
Very little is known about Shakespeare’s youth. Even Shakespearean scholars cannot determine which academic institution he attended in his youth. They, however, believe that, based on young Shakespeare’s knowledge of Latin and Classical Greek, he most probably attended free grammar school in Stratford. William Shakespeare never had formal university schooling.
In 28 November 1582, William married a pregnant Anne Hathaway who was 8 years his senior. They had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. It is unfortunate that Hamnet did not live to see adulthood, he died at age 11.
It is not known when Shakespeare arrived in London, but the scholars surmise it to be around 1588. He must have shown much promise as, even during the early stages of his career; he received many an attack on his works. These, however, did not faze the playwright as he continued to write and act in plays such as Lord Chamberlain’s Men.
William Shakespeare is probably, compared to his contemporaries, the most successful playwright during his time. He published and sold several of his works, and his company can be considered as the most successful group in London. Shakespeare retired in Stratford in 1611.
Just as his birth was full of mystery, so was his death. William Shakespeare supposedly passed away on his birthday, 23 April 1616.
Seven years after his death, John Heminges and Henry Condell, two of his companions in Lord Chamberlain’s Men, published The First Folio, a compilation of previously unpublished works. His Sonnets were first seen through this book.

 
   
 

Poems by William Shakespeare  :

O Mistress Mine

Romeo and Juliet

Shall I Compare Thee

Sonnet CXVI

Tell her that's young

Being your slave

Let Me Not to the Marriage of True Minds

How Like a Winter Hath My absence Been

From you have I been absent

O never say that I was false of heart

Take, O take those lips away

That Time of Year Thou Mayst in Me Behold
