1 William Shakespeare "Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em."

2 All the world s a stage A fool thiks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool Better three hours too soon than a minute too late There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so Love all, trust few, do wrong to no one It s not enough to speak, but to speak true Nothing can come of nothing What s done can t be undone The Earth has music for those who listen It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves Pleasure and action make the hours seem short We know what we are, but know not what we may be A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow All that glitters is not gold Make your hair stand on end

3 William Shakespeare Who Was William Shakespeare? William Shakespeare was an English playwright and poet, widely regarded as one of the greatest ever English writers. Some of Shakespeare s better known plays include Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing. Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564 before moving to London to become an actor at age 21. Shakespeare wrote different genres of plays throughout his career, starting out mainly with comedies and histories before moving on to tragedies as he grew older. In 1599, along with some fellow actors, Shakespeare built a theatre on the South Bank of the River Thames which he named The Globe. It was here that many of his plays were performed. Today, visitors to London can still watch Shakespeare plays at the restored Globe Theatre. William Shakespeare was a very well-known character in Tudor England. It is thought that Elizabeth I was a fan of his plays. The original Globe Theatre Fun fact: William Shakespeare was the only member of his family that could read or write!

6 Activity 2 Read the short text about Shakespeare s plays. Then answer the questions. Shakespeare wrote 37 plays. These are usually divided into three types comedies, tragedies and histories. The comedies aren t always funny, but they do have good endings that are happy. His most famous comedies include A Midsummer Night s Dream and Twelfth Night. Tragedies, on the other hand, always have sad endings which can make people cry. Shakespeare seemed to like writing tragedies. Probably his most famous one is Romeo and Juliet. Finally, the histories are plays that are about people or events in history. In Shakespeare s history plays the facts were not always correct! For example, in Julius Caesar all the events happen on the same day. So in Shakespeare s play, Caesar is murdered and buried on the same day! 1 How many plays did Shakespeare write? 2 What are the three types of play called? 3 What is the difference between a comedy and a tragedy? 4 What kind of play was Twelfth Night? 5 What was Shakespeare s most famous tragedy? 6 Why are Shakespeare s history plays strange? Activity 3 Read the short summaries of three of Shakespeare s most famous plays. Which is a comedy, which is a history and which is a tragedy? [A] This play takes place in Venice where a young man of 18 falls in love with a girl of 14. But, there is a problem - their families are enemies. The man is not allowed to meet the girl, but he does in secret. Then he sees the girl on the ground and he thinks she is dead. He is so upset that he kills himself. When the girl wakes up and sees him dead, she kills herself. [B] A brother (Sebastian) and sister (Viola) are shipwrecked, but they both think the other one has died. Viola arrives at the palace of Count Orsino dressed as a boy. The Count is in love with Olivia, the daughter of a local lord, but she doesn t love him. He asks Viola to take a letter to Olivia telling her how much he loves her. When Viola arrives Olivia falls in love with her because she looks like a man (she is still dressed in boy s clothes). Then Sebastian is found alive and in the end Olivia marries Viola s brother, Sebastian, and the Count marries Viola! [C] This play takes place in ancient Rome. A group of men decide to kill the Emperor. They kill him on March 15th. Then the Emperor s nephew comes to Rome to try and find the men who killed his uncle and kill them. One of these men Brutus is so unhappy about what he has done that he wants to kill himself. Do you know the name of each of these plays?
