Product Description
This is a 28 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The Renaissance - Key Figures - William Shakespeare. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. His works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 38 plays, 154 sonnets, 2 long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship.

His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. The works of Shakespeare have been performed in countless hamlets, villages, cities and metropolises for more than 400 years. Yet the personal history of William Shakespeare is somewhat a mystery.

There are 2 primary sources that provide historians with a basic outline of his life: his work; the plays, poems and sonnets and official documentation; church and court records. However, these only provide brief sketches of specific events in his life and provide little on the person who experienced those events.

Today, his plays are highly popular and constantly studied and reinterpreted in performances with diverse cultural and political contexts. The genius of Shakespeare's characters and plots are that they present real human beings in a wide range of emotions and conflicts that transcend their origins in Elizabethan England.
