Entry of a Bard

  How now readers! Let's straight away dive into another guessing game!
  In the morrow of 23rd April a boy was born. At the age of 18 he married a wench named Anne Hathaway!! Later he joined a theatre group for his living. He waxed up and took to writing. So was his gravity that he invented around 1700 words. He was the one who said the world is a stage. He is the one responsible for you reading all those English lessons with difficulty. And he was the one who scripted one of his most famous line. "Et tu Brute".

  Ye surely must have unvisored this lad. If not from clues, from the strange words used!  Thine guess is correct!!
It's William Shakespeare!

  Though the date of birth is not confirmed it is believed that he entered the stage on 23rd April 1564. He had a very successful writing career with 38 plays,154 sonnets, two long narrative poems and almost 1700 new words.
  Huh! Look at the change in condition these days. You write something else and it's a mistake and Shakespeare wrote something else and he invented 1700 words!! (Well of course words like eu, mah, guyzz, nd cannot be taken into account).
  Thing he was most famous for are his plays! He wrote in almost every genre like comedy, tragedy, romance, etc.
Not only plays he was very well gifted in writing sonnets in every genre. He wrote on love (To impress wenches) he wrote on tragedies, he wrote on life he just wrote what he cared!
  He was behind the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, he was behind the scene when Portia saved Antonio, he was behind when Petruchio successfully tamed the shrew.
  Traditionally celebrated on this day is also his death anniversary. So it may be true that he entered and made an exit on the same day.(Of different years)
  Though the trend these days are J.K.Rowling, Dan Brown, Chetan Bhagat, Veronica Roth he is the one considered as the evergreen master of English literature!
  Some People find his works boring not because of volumnous size of the books, but becouse of his Thy, Thee, Thine, Thou,etc. But that's what is authentic and that is what is his masterstroke. His books are rich in some very different words and their usage.
And some quotes which are very much relatable even today!
  After his successful career he was elated with the title "The Bard Of The Avon".
  And guess the biggest coincidence!! Today is also the "World Books Day!". So wishes to all the bookworms out there.

  So before farebidding here's on of his many famous quotes. (Understand it if you can,this is Mr.Shakespeare for you!!)

"To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."
