Read about one of the most famous people of Britain, William Shakespeare. For questions 1-4 choose the best answer (a,b or c).
1. Shakespeare’s works are often published in one book, and it’s not a very large one. Perhaps some may wonder why Shakespeare is valued as one of the world’s greatest poets. It would be very difficult to give a brief explanation. But open any of his plays and read and you’ll immediately see why people regard him as the greatest playwright who has ever lived. For one thing, when Shakespeare has said a thing, it seems impossible that it could ever be said better. Shakespeare’s language is indeed the language of life. His experience as an actor and his poetical genius made his plays the most wonderful ones ever written.
2. Shakespeare’s plays are also wonderfully interesting. In his plays he could write equally well funny scenes and scenes of fear and excitement. His historic works tell the stories of the early English kings: of poor Richard II, clever Henry IV and brave Henry V. Others tell the tragic stories of the ancient world: about the murder of Julius Caesar, about the Roman general Mark Antony. Other plays tell the tales of imaginary characters: of Othello, who murdered his wife after listening to the lies of an evil man. William Shakespeare was born more than four hundred years ago, but his plays are still performed and will be performed for many years to come.
3. Shakespeare knew human nature very well. The characters in his plays seem like real people. There are many heroes among them, fine soldiers and not very clever men, beautiful ladies and tigers in women’s clothing. Shakespeare was able to show us almost every kind of man and woman, good and bad, and to know how to touch all our feelings, from sad to joyful. We cannot help feeling sorry when we see poor old King Lear walking around in the storm, and we laugh at the adventures of the fat and funny Falstaff.
4. Last of all, though Shakespeare wrote his plays for the amusement of those who went to see them, they contain many good lessons, which can help those who read them to be better, wiser and happier. Shakespeare’s belief in man was the source of his optimism, which we can feel even in his blackest tragedies: Romeo and Juliet died but their ideal of free and happy love stayed forever.
