            Shakespeare is called the greatest author in the English language not only because his works are in English, but also for his profound and lasting impact on the language itself. William was a great English playwright, dramatist, and poet who lived during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Shakespeare's plays are usually divided into three major categories, these are Three plays which are in the category of comedy are The Comedy of Errors, The Taming of the Shrew, and The Two Gentlemen of Verone.

They began to copy and experiment. Sir Thomas Wyatt took the sonnet into English, and was crucial to the development of the English language become a proving ground for poets. Queen Elizabeth 1 has a fair claim to be the best educated monarch ever to sit on the throne of England, the knights of Elizabeth's encourage, that the role fell to turn the English language into literature, looking for immorality in verse.
