William Shakespeare is probably the most famous writer in the world. He was born in 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. When he was only 18 years old, he married Anne Hathaway and they had three children. We don't know much about Shakespeare's early life, but by 1592 he was working in London as an actor. Shakespeare wrote 37 plays, including 'Hamlet', 'Romeo and Juliet', 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'Henry V'. He made a lot of money and in 1597 he bought one of the best houses in Stratford. He died there in 1616. Today you can see Shakespeare's plays in theatres all over the world and in several films. There's also a film about Shakespeare's life, called 'Sheakespeare in Love'.
