[Portrait of William Shakespeare by John Taylor]

William Shakespeare is a distinguished writer and actor whose work has delighted generations of fans. His popular plays and poetry—among them 154 sonnets—have been widely anthologized. He unexpectedly returned from a lengthy hiatus in writing to contribute billions of new poems to this project. Shakespeare currently resides in a small basement flat in the Waterside area of Stratford, Warwickshire.
