Wonderful Writers: William Shakespeare

wonder ful 2

Hi All! Wonderful Writers is a weekly segment that comes out every Wednesday! Every week I spotlight and discuss one of my favorite authors, books by them, and talk about their writing styles and such. I hope you’ll enjoy. Feel free to participate as well by writing your own post and as always you are welcome to use the meme/pic if you’d like (just remember to credit me).

About:

Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language. His works include 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, about 38 plays, etc. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

What I’ve Read (So Far):

  • Macbeth
  • Hamlet
  • Julius Caesar
  • Various Sonnets

Why He’s A Wonderful Writer:

William Shakespeare is a master of words! I’ve only read some of his very famous works, but I love the plays and sonnets he produces. He is able to work with all literary genres and he knows how to play on words. Being an English major I have major respect toward Will seeing a he is one of the top British playwright/author in the world. When you sit down and analyze his works you see how much meaning and emotion he puts into his writing.

What are some your favorite Shakespeare works?
