Shakespeare was born on 23 April. 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon in England. His father is a successful glove-maker and a farmer. His mother is the daughter of a farmer. Shakespeare is the third child in the family and he has seven brothers and sisters. His father keeps his shop in this house in Stratford-upon-Avon.
His eight children were born here. You can see the modest room in this house where William was born. It has dark furniture and small windows. Their cottage and the furniture are reconstructed and you forget things are really old. Will got a very good education. He was educated at the King’s New School in Stratford. The school provided an intensive education in Latin grammar and the classics. At the age of 18 Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway. She was 26. In 1587 William went to work in London.

Выразительное чтение фрагмента из трагедии «Ромео и Джульетта» (акт II сцена 2) на английском и русском языках.
Scene II
O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.
Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s a Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man? O, be some other name?
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes.
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.
I take thee at thy word: Call me but love, and
I’ll be new baptizeol; hecnceforth I never will be

The beginning of the end.
All is well that ends well.
Life is not all cakes and ale.
Brevity is the soul of wit.
Much ado about nothing.
Sweets to the sweets.
To win golden opinions.
A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a house!
There  the  rub.
All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.
Love’s blind.
I must be cruel, only to be kind.
Весь мир - театр. И все мы  в нем актеры.
Прекрасное - прекрасной.
Любовь слепа.
Много шума из ничего.
Краткость - сестра таланта.
Начало конца.
Коня, коня! Полцарства за коня!
Из жалости я должен быть жесток.
Все хорошо, что хорошо кончается.
Жизнь прожить - не поле перейти.
Заслужить благоприятное мнение.
Вот в чем загвоздка.
