Module 4: Who is Shakespeare?

I believe that Shakespeare is Shakespeare. He was born in April, 1564 in place called Stratford-upon-Avon. His father John Shakespeare was a glover, trader, and landowner. Shakespeare was married to Ann Hathaway in November, 1582. They had three children, 2 daughters and a son. Lather in his life Shakespeare joined a troupe of players and moved to London. He became a member of London's leading theater company, the Lord Chamberlain's Company, he wrote plays and became a sharer of the Globe theater. In 1956 he bought and restored New Place, the second-largest house in Stratford (Reedy and Kathman parg.1-2). Beside all this evidence there is also “the narrative poem Venus and Adonis was published by Stratford native Richard Field, with a dedication to the Earl of Southampton signed "William Shakespeare"(Reedy and Kathman parg.4). Beside this evidence there is a lot more that proves Shakespeare’s existence and authorship of his work. I personally do not see how can some one say that he did not exits or wrote his work for that matter. What more evidence do they want. People need to realize that back than they did not have computers to save data. We are lucky to have any kind of documents considering the time and technology back than.
