Career of William Shakespeare :

William Shakespeare did his schooling from Stretford Grammar School, a local school. Due to his father’s growing economic smile, he had to leave his studies and get into small business. 

After this he moved to London in 1587 in search of livelihood, in London he worked in a small job in a theater.

Another reason for moving to London was that he had to leave his birthplace, fearing legal action towards the theft of deer from the garden of Sir Thomas Loose, the landlord of Charlott.

William began his theatrical career in 1585, and worked on it for 7 years. By 1592, William Shakespeare had become famous in the theater world. For this reason, in order to downplay Shakespeare’s popularity, in the same year a person named Robert Green wrote an article picking up William Shakespeare’s name and mocking him. But Shakespeare attracted the attention of both critics and fans.

From 1594 onwards, almost all of Shakespeare’s plays were performed by the men of Lord Chamberlain. The group reached an all-time high, playing a leading company in London. Not only this, William Shakespeare bought his own theater in 1599 and named it Globe.

In 1603 he was honored by a company with a royal patent. That group became very popular since Shakespeare published and sold many of his popular literature. 

Shakespeare acted in several theatricals written by himself and others. Some of which include “Every Men in His Humor”, “Seasons His Fall”, “The First Folio,” You Like It “” Hamlet “and” Henry 6 “. In the late 16th and early 17th centuries there was an increase in the graph of Shakespeare’s career.

William Shakespeare quotes :

  • All that glitters is not gold
  •  Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Hover through the fog and filthy air.
  •  These violent delights have violent ends…
  •  Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
  •  By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes. Open, locks, Whoever knocks!
  •  The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
  •  Brevity is the soul of wit.
  •  If music be the food of love, play on.
  • Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
  •  Now is the winter of our discontent.
