More About the Author

William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised on 26 April 1564. Thought to have been educated at the local grammar school, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he went on to have three children, at the age of eighteen, before moving to London to work in the theatre. Two erotic poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were published in 1593 and 1594 and records of his plays begin to appear in 1594 for Richard III and the three parts of Henry VI. Shakespeare's tragic period lasted from around 1600 to 1608, during which period he wrote plays including Hamlet and Othello. The first editions of the sonnets were published in 1609 but evidence suggests that Shakespeare had been writing them for years for a private readership.

Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in Stratford, by now a wealthy man. He died on 23 April 1616 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. The first collected edition of his works was published in 1623.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything a teacher could ask for 15 Feb 2012
By Nadia Kline-Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I barely ever use teacher's editions of books, especially Shakespeare, because I feel like the activities in them aren't very student centered or don't properly challenge my students. I've used the Cambridge School Shakespeare versions of Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and now Julius Caesar and they are all absolutely amazing.

The goal of the Cambridge editions is to help students appreciate and genuinely connect with the text. There are no great writing assignments but many ideas for helping a class interact, understand and enjoy.
