Who is William Shakespeare?
William Shakespeare is considered one of the greatest writers in the world. Shakespeare wrote one hundred and thirty-six plays, and a collection of one hundred and forty sonnets while writing a few long poems. He holds a prominent place among the literary figures of history whose work has been viewed with devotion and respect for four centuries.
Shakespeare’s works have been translated into countless languages and his plays have been performed millions of times on stage. Interestingly, the identity of this great creator is a mystery. Is he the creator of the literature which is accepted according to the prevailing point of view or the point of view of skeptics who refuse to accept him as the creator? The arguments of the skeptics carry so much weight that they cannot be easily ignored.
William Shakespeare was born in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon in 1554 and died in 1616. According to the biography, William Shakespeare’s father was a wealthy businessman who later had to face poverty. William Shakespeare attended Stratford Grammar School, where he studied Latin and classical literature. At the age of eighteen, a woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son. Two and a half years later, she gave birth to two more twins. Thus, at the age of twenty-one, he was responsible for the maintenance of a wife and three children. History is silent on what he did for the next few years. However, in the 1590s he was associated with a London drama company and was a successful actor. After that, he wrote plays and started writing poetry and soon he became one of the successful writers.
Within a few years he became wealthy and bought a large house in Stratford. In 1612, at the age of forty-eight, he withdrew from writing and moved back to his hometown, where he died a few years later. In his will, he bequeathed a large portion of his estate to his daughter, Susanna, before his death. His tomb was built in the same church that still exists today. These are the living conditions that Shakespeare’s biographers believe. But they all admit that very little is known about Shakespeare. However, they give such an explanation which is not accepted by the intellect.
It is said to be four hundred years old, so much so that such a great personality who belonged to a developed country like England in the time of Queen Elizabeth, did not belong to any backward African or Asian country. There are countless documents about the common people of England at that time, but not of a great writer like Shakespeare. A review of this biography reveals a number of instances, such as if he had studied at the Stratford Grammar School, no teacher or classmate has ever claimed to have read or taught with a great author like Shakespeare. Is. Researchers have researched it from generation to generation, accumulating information about many unimportant poets and writers, but only about three dozen references to Shakespeare are available and they do not prove him to be a great writer or poet. Although we have a lot of information about the poets and writers who were born a century and a half ago, but not about Shakespeare. Shakespeare is said to have spent twenty years in London, but there is no evidence of this because not a single person in the record wrote that he met Shakespeare or had any correspondence with him. No one has ever admitted to seeing Shakespeare on stage or listening to his poetry or drama because if that happened then it would not be a trivial matter for anyone. London was a big city, but in his hometown he had no acquaintance with this great man and he did not put this reference on record.
Even Shakespeare’s family, a Stratford resident, did not recognize him as a poet, playwright or literary figure, which is certainly surprising. Oddly enough, there is no Shakespeare manuscript, poetry or diary and no such document except a few signatures on legal documents. The letters and letters of such a great writer are preserved by people from generation to generation, but this is not the case with Shakespeare and no one has any of Shakespeare’s letters. Is it just a coincidence that all his handwriting has been erased?
Shakespeare’s parents and wife and children were illiterate. Can a person like Shakespeare, who has lived his life in love of knowledge and words, allow his children to be illiterate? And if so, perhaps Shakespeare is the only great writer in history whose children were illiterate. Surprisingly, the will that Shakespeare wrote mentions the most trivial things but does not mention any of his plays, poems or books. There is not the slightest hint in his documents that he writes drama or poetry and has published or wants to publish a book. During this period, his friends would mourn the death of a great poet or writer, but no such arrangement was made on the death of Shakespeare, nor is there any writing of any poet or writer. Ben Johnson, who later called himself Shakespeare’s greatest fan or friend, is also missing. It was a common practice in those days for poets or writers to express their life experiences in their writings. Shakespeare’s writings show that he belongs to the elite, highly read
