Shakespeare was known as the greatest body of literature works in the English language,
In fact there is no solid linking Shakespeare with the plays, poems and sonnets attributed to him.
In the plays written the people only refer him as an actor, never explicitly as a playwright.
No one even knows how to spell his name the only remains of his handwriting are six signatures spelled several different ways.
Shakespeare wrote 36 plays, 154 sonnets, and 2 narrative poems.
Shakespeare is the 2nd most quoted writer in the English language after the Bible.
