William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright. He was baptized on April 26, 1564 and died on April 23, 1616 in the city of Stratford-upon-Avon. Shakespeare is considered one of the most important English-speaking writers, so that English is often called "language of Shakespeare". His work is one of the most widely translated in the world.

Shakespeare's life has given rise to many rumors and theories, as there are not many historical elements that trace it. Nevertheless, his biography is now considered to be quite reliable.

Shakespeare's work contains about 39 plays covering both comedy and tragedy, as well as more than 150 sonnets. His powerful literary style has brought many of his expressions into everyday language. In the same way, the various themes and the complexity of the psychology of his characters have left a major imprint in the world literature.
