For those who are fond of reading a small collection of world-known authors, famous thanks to their huge talent for literary fiction, is presented here.
1. William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
A writer that needs no introduction is, certainly, William Shakespeare. Being a world known English poet and playwright, Shakespeare wrote approximately 38 plays, 154 sonnets, and 2 poems. By his hand such recognizable tragedies as Othello, Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet were written, staged at The Globe, theater founded by Shakespeare in London, and translated into many other languages to be read throughout the world. Shakespeare in an extremely talented way described human passions, feelings, desires, masterly displaying them in his characters’ actions. Being an outstanding author, Shakespeare’s life remains largely a mystery. However, there is one thing we can be sure of, it is that he loved theater very much, otherwise he would not say one of his the most famous phrases that all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.
