A rose by any other name

William Shakespeare is a famous English poet. He also was an actor and created playwrights. England regards him as their national poet, and he is considered one of the greatest writers of the English language. He was born in 1564 and wed Anne Hathaway when he was just 18 years old. She was much older and already pregnant with their first child. After their daughter, the couple went on to have twins.

William Shakespeare created most of his infamous work between 1589 and 1613. His earliest plays were histories and comedies, which were some of the best in that genre. However, his tragedies including Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, and Othello are what made him notorious. They are thought to be some of the best-written accounts of the English language.

He passed away at the same home in England in which he was born. However, most people do not know how William Shakespeare died. Some speculate he drank too much one night and contracted a fever, which led to his untimely death at the age of 52. Romeo and Juliet is still considered one of the paramount love stories of all time.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
