Read the text and answer the question!     William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon on 23rd April 1564.

They had three children named Susanna, Hamnet, and Juliet. Their only son, Hamnet, died at the age of just 11. After his marriage, information about the life of Shakespeare was sketchy, but it seemed he spent most of his time in London – writing and acting in his plays.     It seemed Shakespeare didn’t mind being absent from his family – he only returned home during Lent when all the theatres were closed. It was thought that during the 1590s, he wrote the majority of his sonnets. This was a time of prolific writing and his plays developing a good deal of interest and controversy. His early plays were mainly comedies (e.g. Much Ado about Nothing, A Midsummer’s Night Dream) and histories (e.g. Henry V).     By the early Seventeenth Century, Shakespeare had begun to write plays in the genre of tragedy.
