This video tells the story of the master poet and storyteller William Shakespeare, who is widely regarded as the best playwright who ever lived. Born in Stratford on Avon in 1564, Shakespeare produced his first play in London in 1592. In 1599, he became a part owner of the Globe Theatre, where his dramas were performed. His astute characterizations and marvelous use of language have made his works endure through the centuries. The video features on-location film footage, literary commentary, and readings from the Bard's comedies, histories, tragedies, and sonnets. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
