Biography of William Shakespeare
The great English playwright and poet William Shakespeare was born in 1564 in Stratford-on-Avon, England. He seems to get a decent basic education but not to walk on higher education. Shakespeare married at the age of eighteen (twenty-six wives), father of three before reaching age twenty-one.

Several years later, he went to London, becomes the child stage and playwright. When he reached thirty Shakespeare had already shown success. And when the age of thirty-four foot, he's so rich people and is considered a leading British playwright. Ten years later, he was led to great works such as Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth and King Lear.

Within a period of twenty years who have special meanings that Shakespeare lived in London, his wife remained in Stratford. Shakespeare died in 1616 at about the 52nd birthday. He had no living descendants.

There are 38 well-known drama of Shakespeare's creation, including some small drama that probably worked with someone else. In addition, he wrote a number of 154 sonatas and three or four long poems.

Judging from the genius of Shakespeare, the results and fame that had been granted, weird impression of what might arise because the names were not placed in the upper sequence in this book list. I put Shakespeare is so low not because I do not appreciate the power of his art, but solely because I believe that in general or literary figures of the artist does not have a major influence in history.

Activities of religious leaders, scientists, politicians, investigators, philosophers, the Creator more often affects the various fields of human life. For example, advances in science have a major influence on the political and economic livelihoods, and was also influenced by religious beliefs, the nature of philosophical and artistic development.

However, a famous painter, although he had a major influence on other painters, not have any influence on the development of music and literature, it is said also to science, or field of inquiry. The same thing applies to areas of poetry, drama and music. As a result, in general bisalah say, the influence of artists that just touches the fields of art, even confined to certain parts of the art. Therefore, there is no figure of literary, musical or other art that is placed on top of the sequence stars. 30, in fact, very few are featured in this book.

If so, why was there an artist that includes a list? The answer is, the pleasure of art is the direct (though not always the main part) in an individual's life. In other words, someone could provide a portion of his time listening to music, some read books, some looked at the painting and so on. Even if we spend time listening to music had no influence on our other activities (this is certainly something to be exaggerated) after all this time remains an important thing in our lives.

Of course personal an artist could have a impact on our lives more than we spend time listening to music, read a book or enjoy their work. This is because his work has influenced so much good work of other artists that we enjoy the results.

In some ways, more or less artistic work has philosophical significance that could affect our attitude in the field of other problems. This of course happens more often in matters relating to literature than to music or painting. For example, in Romeo and Juliet (Act III, scene 1) Shakespeare wrote the prince's speech "Mercy but murders, pardoning Those That Kill," presents a clear idea (off the people accept it or not) who has a philosophical meaning, and more political influence than , say, looking at the painting "Mona Lisa."

Shakespeare seems no doubt surpass all literary figures. Comparatively, very few people now read Chaucer, Virgil or Homer, unless their work was finished reading the provisions of the school. But staging a Shakespeare must be welcome. Shakespeare in excess perangkuman verses really do not tertandingkan and sentences are often cited, even by people who never once did things to see or read his plays. Moreover, the real true what fame is not just a passing traffic. Happiness in his work presents to its readers and audiences for nearly four centuries. Because of these works has been steady time-tested, it is reasonable assume that Shakespeare's fame will continue for centuries to come.

In terms of determining the significance of Shakespeare one must take into account if he had never lived in the world, his plays would never have written about at all. Of course, to some extent, a similar statement can be given to each artist or literary figures. However, that factor does not seem have any special significance in the assessment of the weight of influence on artists of small size.

Although Shakespeare wrote in English, he's really known figure seseluruh world. If instead of a very universal language, English is the closest to the size of other languages ​​than ever. After all, Shakespeare has been translated widely and his work read and performed in various countries.

There are of course some famous writer whose work has been criticized by art critics. Shakespeare is not the case in which his work appreciated without reserve by literary experts. Generations of playwrights studied his work and tried to imitate as well as or outmaneuvered. The combination of a very large influence on the authors and the fame that was decided in the society that puts Shakespeare in the order high enough in this book list.
