Reading comprehension – William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare’s Family 

William Shakespeare is thought to have been born on 23rd April, 1564 in Stratford- upon-Avon, England. William was the third child of John and Mary Shakespeare. 

Fascinating Facts 

• At the age of 18, William married Anne Hathaway. 

  • They had a daughter called Susanna in 1583. 
  • Two years later, Anne gave birth to twins-a boy called Hamnet and a girl called Judith. Hamnet died when he was 11 years old. 
  • William moved to London where he earned money as an actor and a playwright. 

Shakespeare’s Plays 

  • Shakespeare wrote plays which were tragedies (very sad plays) and comedies, which were funny. He wrote the plays about things people had experienced: jealousy, anger, love, romance, religion and war. 
  • Some of his most famous plays have been turned into cartoons and films. For example, Romeo and Juliet was made into a film, and later a cartoon 
  • about two garden gnomes! 

Shakespeare’s words. 

He made up over 300 words and phrases that are now used in the English language. These include: 

  • barefaced
  • wild goose chase
  • all that glitters I not gold
  • fair-play
  • hobnob
  • bedazzled

William Shakespeare died on April 23rd 1616, which was the same day as his birthday, at the age of 52.
