oday (April 23) is National Shakespeare Day–a day for fans of the bard to celebrate his life and work.

William Shakespeare is widely considered to be one of the world’s greatest poets and playwrights.

He was also responsible for contributing hundreds of words to the English language–many of which we still use today.

National Shakespeare Day is a great opportunity to read (or go watch) your favourite Shakespearean play. Or, with dozens of movies based on the bard’s work, you can celebrate the influence the playwright has had on popular culture.

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, in April 1564. His parents were John Shakespeare and Mary Arden, who bought a house on Henley Street–which is now known as Shakespeare’s birthplace.

Where did William Shakespeare live?

Shakespeare grew up in Stratford-upon-Avon and married his wife Anne Hathaway in 1582, when he was 18.

Little is known about Shakespeare between the years of 1585 and 1592–known as “The Lost Years”–but he was living in London by 1592.

In 1597, Shakespeare began buying property and land in Stratford and may have inherited two houses in the town when his father died.

He retired to Stratford sometime after 1611.

Where did William Shakespeare die?
