Poetry by Shakespear

I like Shakespeare.
He is world’s greatest playwright . He writes in old English. He writes very much about love. He loved his wife. He compares his love to nature.

He compares his love to nature since weather was always important since houses were cold and dark.
In England it was rainy, therefore the weather was even more important.

Shakespear´s language

Shakespeare´s language
King Lear is Drama!
It`s time for old King Lear to stop being king!
And leave over the kingdome

Sonnet 116 -Poetry

Shakespeare`s old English!
“Love`s not time`s fool,though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle´s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks”

Modern English!
“Love doesn´t depend on time, although the rosy lips and cheeks of youth eventually come within the compass of Time´s sickle.
Love doesn`t alter as the days and weeks go by but endures until death.”

I think he was a Old man and weather was hot! Because he was sick before he died!

He writes about love and life and plays about Hamlet,Othello, Macbeth, The Tempest, Julius Caesar, Twelfth night or what you will, The merchant of Venice.

The Film Shakespear in Love

This is a story about Shakespeare.
Everything began with Shakespeare working at a theater with different manuscripts. It’s in 1300. The theater would have reached exciting script and a play to play. Shakespeare would be in charge of creating a good script.

Shakespeare sat up several nights and days to write the perfect script. But when Shakespeare had finished writing every time, the theater where he worked was not satisfied. They said they wanted something more exciting to play. More romantic and exciting they thought. So the theater staff threw Shakespeare’s script that he had written. So Shakespeare had to start over and get something exciting.

So Shakespeare had to start over again. What he did not know was that there was a girl in the village who wanted to play theater. So the girl dressed up as a guy and was going to take a shot. One day at an interlude, the theater would bring in new actors. They watched who was good enough to play at the theater . But nobody fit in. But a dressed girl from a manor house came in dressed to a guy. She said all Shakespeare’s manuscript as she read.

Shakespeare who was in the room was surprised and shouted at the guy. The guy named Thomas then ran away. Shakespeare ran afterwards and saw that Thomas went by boat to a castle. Shakespeare followed another boat and later he left the dock, but Thomas ran towards the castle. Shakespeare knocked and asked about the guy Thomas. The services lady would check the case. So Shakespeare waited and waited but eventually he gave up and went home again.

Shakespeare worked the next day at the theater after a good script for a play that would be useful. Then again, the mysterious guy Thomas came. When Thomas talked and interviewed once again, Shakespeare again called on Thomas. Then Thomas ran again.
But this time, Shakespeare managed to get in the same boat as Thomas. They talked for a while. Then Shakespeare got to know that Thomas was a dressed guy. But Thomas did not talk so much and fled up to the castle.

But Shakespeare did not give up so easily. He went back to the balcony. He climbed up by the tree that lay up to Thomas’s room. When Thomas, who had taken off the boys clothes, was surprised when he saw Shakespeare and became shocked first. Then they lay together in bed and talked for a long while as well.

When they lay there, Shakespeare come on a super good play and asked the girl if she wanted to join that play with him and some other actors? She would love it very much.

But she told Shakespeare to promise not to reveal her like and so promised Shakespeare it. Then at night he climbed down and got home again. The next day, Shakespeare wrote on a script called Romeo and Julia. He wrote day in and day out. When half the script was finished, he showed the script for the theater and they were happy. They decided they should rehearse that play. So they brought in some actors and Thomas who was the dressed girl from the castle was also included. They practiced it for several days as well.

Then every night, Shakespeare came to the girl at manor house and they talked about the script every night and how they would rehearse in the days and how they would go and say. Then the girl in the castle would go to the queen because she would fix one thing. Shakespeare wanted to accompany but dressed as a woman. At the Queen’s , they discussed how much money would be best given to the best play. Shakespeare said with a girl’s voice 50 shilling if his play would be good. Finally, the queen said, yes leaving the throne room as well.

The next day everyone practiced the play. When it approached a date the play would be released, Shakespeare and Thomas hugged each other and had sex with each other. Then a boy had discovered that Thomas was a girl at the time and say to the director of the theater. The next day when the actors practiced  the Romeo and Juliet play, the head came to the theater and said there was a woman among them.

Everyone just looked surprised as well. Someone threw down a rat on the neck of Thomas. Thomas tried to shake off the rat but dropped the wig from her head and suddenly the woman’s hair showed and everyone looked sad at her. The head of the theater said he would close the theater because of the woman who dressed up as well. So everyone was sad and in the evening everyone sat down at the bar drinking beer. Until a man came in saying that they could play Romeo and Julia at his theater. Then everyone became happy as well. So soon there was great premiere Romeo and Juliet the play. Everyone came into the theater.

Everyone was in full swing to prepare. Nobody could play Julia but they played the play anyway. People sat in there and looked happy in the play. The woman from the manor house was there too and looked at the play. When the woman from the manor house found out that no-one could play Julia, she walked in to the play and played Julia. The woman’s husband whom she would marry was also there and looked at her play in the play. Outside the boss and some soldiers came to the theater. They were going to arrest the woman for treason. But the whole play was played and everyone applauded and bowed to the people. Then suddenly the soldiers came in and when they would to arrest the woman, one of them took a coat. It was the queen she had seen all the play. The soldiers immediately kicked back. Now the queen arrived with a clear look and told Shakespeare that it was a good play and that he would get 50 shliling for the play. The other woman’s married man got angry when he lost his agreement as well. Then everyone went out and the woman was getting married and traveling with her husband she did not love. So she told her Shakespeare goodbye and they talked about what he would write about. Before the woman from the manor house would go she said that he He could find something to write. Then they hugged each other and kissed each other for the last time. Later she left the theater to travel with her husband. A few months later, Shakespeare sat and wrote about the woman from the manor house and wrote about her trip. Here’s the end of our story about Shakespeare.
