William Shakespeare, - Although there are many myths and mysteries surrounding William Shakespeare, a great deal is actually known about his life. He was born in Stratford-Upon-Avon, son of John Shakespeare, a prosperous merchant and local politician and Mary Arden, who had the wealth to send their oldest son to Stratford Grammar School.
At 18, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, the year-old daughter of a local farmer, and they had their first daughter six months later. He probably developed an interest in theatre by watching plays performed by traveling players in Stratford while still in his youth. Some time before , he left his family to take up residence in London, where he began acting and writing plays and poetry.
By Shakespeare had become a member and part owner of an acting company called The Lord Chamberlain's Men, where he soon became the company's principal playwright. His plays enjoyed great popularity and high critical acclaim in the newly built Globe Theatre. It was through his popularity that the troupe gained the attention of the new king, James I, who appointed them the King's Players in Before retiring to Stratford in , after the Globe burned down, he wrote more than three dozen plays that we are sure of and more than sonnets.

The last of Shakespeare's tragedies, Coriolanus was written in approximately and derived from Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans. A timeless tale of pride, revenge, and political chicanery, it remains ever-relevant for modern readers and audiences. Jonson's praise is especially prescient, since at the turn of the 17th century Shakespeare was but one of many popular London playwrights and none of his dramas were printed in his lifetime.
The reason so many of his works survive is because two of his actor friends, with the assistance of Jonson, assembled and published the First Folio edition of Book Preview Click the Google Preview button to view an excerpt from the book.
