William Shakespeare (Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, United Kingdom v. 1564jul April 26. - Ibid, 23 abriljul. / 1616 May 3) was a playwright, poet and English actor. Sometimes known as the Bard of Avon (or simply El Bardo), Shakespeare is considered the most important writer in English and one of the most famous of the literature universal.
The New Encyclopædia Britannica says that "many consider the greatest playwright of all time. His pieces are represented from more nations than any other writer.
"Shakespeare's works have been translated into major languages and his plays are still performed all over the world. In addition, many quotations and aphorisms of his works have become part of everyday use, both in English and other languages. Over time, there has been much speculation about his life, questioning his sexuality, religious affiliation, and even the authorship of their works.
