"How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world."

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an English poet, dramatist, and actor often called the English national poet and considered by many to be the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
