wat suggesties voor je tekst Pieter, zonder al té veel in te grijpen:
Shakespeare is the writer of Romeo and Juliet and many other still famous plays: The Merchant of Venice, King Lear, Macbeth,Julius Ceasar, The Tempest a.m.o., also he was an appreciated poet. He has added a lot of new words to the English language. He lived between 1564 and 1616. He writes his plays in a lot of genres, for example historial or comedy.
Many times his inspiration is diverted from other plays or stories. For example the Romeo and Juliet was originally an old Mesopotamian tale.
In his stories he used new words, which we still use today, like for example the words downstairs and upstairs. Also in other languages like "anderhalve man en een paardenkop" in Dutch, as well as "halve zool = half a soul".
He was popular, because his plays and stories were good (outstanding) and the Royal Family as well as the common people loved plays and stories at that time; proof of the popularity of the theatre in those days:a special theatre for his plays was build in London, the Globe.
Shakespeare is still famous, because he shows in his stories that conditions can change during time, but people don’t chance in time.
