William Shakespeare. Born April 1564, at Stratford-upon-Avon. Died April 1616. Married Anne Hathaway: two daughters, one son. Actor, poet, famous playwright. Wrote nearly forty plays. But what was he like as a man? What did he think about when he rode into London for the first time ...or when he was writing his plays Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet ...or when his only son died? We know the facts of his life, but we can only guess at his hopes, his fears, his dreams.
