Shakespeare has written many plays. His most famous are Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Macbeth. If you want to read any of the great plays, borrow a book from your library or go and see a play (sometimes one will be put on). My favourite is A Midsummer Night's Dream. It has alot of magic.

The character of Hamlet is thought to have been inspired by the death of Hamnet, Shakespeare's son. Hamnet died in 1596, and Hamlet was started in 1600.
