The Stratford portrait of William Shakespeare, an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s pre-eminate dramatist. His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narratives poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
