William Shakespeare was born on April 26th in 1564. Written
records give little indication of the way in which Shakespeare’s professional
life molded his artistry. All that can be deduced is that over the course of 20
years, Shakespeare wrote plays that capture the complete range of human emotion
and conflict. His early plays were written in the conventional style of the
day, with elaborate metaphors and rhetorical phrases that didn't always align
naturally with the story's plot or characters. However, Shakespeare was very
innovative, adapting the traditional style to his own purposes and creating a
freer flow of words. At the same time, there are passages in all the plays that
deviate from this and use forms of poetry or simple prose. It was in his later period, after 1600, that he wrote the
tragedies Hamlet, King Lear, Othello and Macbeth.
In these, Shakespeare's characters present vivid impressions of human
temperament that are timeless and universal. Possibly the best known of these
plays is Hamlet, which explores betrayal, retribution, incest and
moral failure. These moral failures often drive the twists and turns of
Shakespeare's plots, destroying the hero and those he loves.
