Introduction of the author/Background of the play

He was the most influential writer in all English Literature. William Shakespeare was born in 1564 to a successful class glove-maker in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Shakespeare attended the local grammar school where he received education in classical rhetoric and oratory, but his formal education did not go further. Later, he married Ann Hathaway, an older lady and they had three children. He left his immediate community in England in 1590 and travelled to London to work as an actor and playwright. Public accreditation later followed and he became the most popular playwright in England. His career spans between the reigns of Elizabeth I and King James I of England. He became so wealthy and renowned and he formally retired to Stratford and died in 1616 at the age of fifty two. Before his death, he authored thirty-seven plays and 154 sonnets that bear his name.
