His poems, particularly his sonnets, which became renowned for their particular form and human themes (love, death, time, memory, etc.), are still studied, memorized, recited, and enjoyed; his plays, likewise, are classics.   William Shakespeare (), considered the greatest English-speaking writer in history and England’s national poet, has had more theatrical works performed than any other playwright.

Performed for audiences over four centuries ago, Shakespeare's plays were written in Early Modern English.
