William Shakespeare is arguably the most creative, thought-provoking and multi-talented writer in history. His works were not simply restricted to one medium, and covered poetry, comedies and not to mention his infamous tragedies which have, and will continue to entertain people for many years to come.

Despite his massive success and mastery of the written word, Shakespeare’s family life was anything but this. Therefore, he does not only teach us about the similarities of language, but also those of society. We read in newspapers and magazines how success can often leave one’s personal life in tatters. This shows us all that the problems many celebrities have today are not so different from those of centuries ago. This further demonstrates the modern day relevance of both Shakespeare’s works as well as society at that time.
