Section B: Summary

Read the passage below and answer the question that follows.

In 1999, William Shakespeare was voted the Man of the Millennium for Britain, and in 2003

he was voted the third Great British achiever of all time. Many people consider him to be the most

influential British figure throughout its history.

William Shakespeare is believed to have been born in April 1564 and died in April 1623. He

married Anne Hathaway at the age of 18, and had three children including a son who died at the age

of 11.He was man actor, playwright and poet. He wrote, or helped to write 38 plays

although several scholars dispute this number.

Shakespeare is the only author to have had over 300 films based on his plays. In British

schools, Shakespeare is the only author studied on a compulsory basis and every British student is

familiar with at least one of his plays.

However, over the centuries, many scholars have written articles and reviews claiming that

Shakespeare did not write all the plays. In the 1950s, George Elliot Sweet’s Shakespeare the

Mystery claimed that Queen Elizabeth was the author. Other scholars claimed that Shakespeare’s

works were in fact, written by Sir Francis Bacon.
