This is a 41-slide PowerPoint presentation covering Shakespeare's life and career from birth to death. Includes Shakespeare's parents, his youth, education, marriage, children, career, his plays, his critics, and the original Globe and the current Globe. Includes text and pictures and a complete list of his plays by category: comedies, tragedies, histories, and so on. Effective as an introduction to Shakespeare, as a review, or a way to bring all students up to speed where students come from different programs and may or may not have studied Shakespeare in the past. I use this every year before my students study Macbeth. Thanks for considering!
