In this topic, we're talking about Shakespeare and other writers. William Shakespeare was a poet and a playwright and is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language. He died more than 400 years ago, in 1616, but his plays are still read and watched by millions of people around the world. They deal with themes that are still as relevant today as they were in his time, such as love, death, power, ambition, betrayal and many more. 

So, can you name many of Shakespeare's plays? Have you read any of them? Which other great writers do you know about?
