Feuding brothers Orlando and Oliver wrestle for their fortunes, and Orlando meets his love, Rosalind. Daughter of a banished Duke, Rosalind is exiled too and ventures into the Forest of Arden after her father, but under the safer guise of a man. Dressed as her male alter ego, Ganymede, she encounters Orlando who, ignorant of her disguise, is fooled by Rosalind into a playful mind game. Oliver enters the forest to challenge his brother and the two must face each other again. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English playwright, poet, and actor. He is considered to be the greatest writer in the English language and is celebrated as the world's most famous dramatist.

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, in 1564. The date of his birth is unknown but is celebrated on 23 April, which happens to be St George's Day, and the day in 1616 on which Shakespeare died.

Aged eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. They had three children. Around 1585 William joined an acting troupe on tour in Stratford from London, and thereafter spent much of his life in the capital. By 1595 he had written five of his history plays, six comedies and his first tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. In all, he wrote thirty-seven plays and much poetry, and earned enormous fame in his own lifetime in prelude to his immortality.
