    Description

    This is a selection of Shakespeare’s poems from The Oxford Book of English Verse: 1250–1900.

    William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.

    He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon".

    His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

    Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century.

    In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance.

    His plays remain highly popular today and are constantly studied, performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.
