Shakespeare’s real life in the play


imgres

While watching M. Wood’s documentary about William Shakespeare, I have learned a lotof interesting facts about Shakespeare. I think the most remarkable thing that I learned from the documentary is that Shakespeare actually wrote his plays and poems based on his real life experience, such as the characters in his plays and poems were the people who existed in his period of time. For example, he sets the hypothetical characters to portray the real people and how they acted and talked in real life. Also in some of his plays, he sets strong female characters to show that they were powerful.  Especially queen in his plays, show that she was a very powerful and strong female character. This poem is what Shakespeare wrote about his love Hathaway, which shows that his poems and plays were somewhat based on a true stories.

Those lips that Love’s own hand did make
Breathed forth the sound that said ‘I hate’
To me that languish’d for her sake;
But when she saw my woeful state
Straight in her heart did mercy come,
Chiding that tongue that ever sweet
Was used in giving gentle doom,
And taught it thus anew to greet:
‘I hate’ she alter’d with an end,
That follow’d it as gentle day
Doth follow night, who like a fiend
From heaven to hell is flown away;
‘I hate’ from hate away she threw,
And saved my life, saying ‘not you.’
