Greatest Authors | Shakespeare
Widely known as the greatest author of English literature ever to have lived, William Shakespeare's works consist of more than 38 plays and 154 sonnets, translated into every major living language and performed more often than those of any other playwright. He invented over 1700 of our common words by changing nouns into verbs, verbs into adjectives, conjoining words, and devising ones wholly original.
All in all, a true literary genius and well deserving of being featured as one of our Greatest Authors here at World of Rare Books. So prepare to be "bedazzled" by this selection of rare gems from this rare talent.
