    Shakespeare's sonnets are cited as evidence of his bisexuality. The poems were initially published, perhaps without his approval, in One hundred twenty-six of them appear to be love poems addressed to a young man known as the 'Fair Lord' or 'Fair Youth'; this is often assumed to be the same person as the 'Mr W.H.' to whom the sonnets are dedicated.   The love poems of the English Renaissance (late 15th–early 17th century) are considered to be some of the most romantic of all time. Many of the most famous poets are more well-known as the Elizabethan era playwrights—Christopher Marlowe (–), Ben Jonson (–), and the most renowned of all, William Shakespeare (–).

    quotes from William Shakespeare: 'The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.', 'Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.', and 'Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.'. Commentary 1. As an unperfect actor on the stage, unperfect = not knowing his lines perfectly, inadequately rehearsed. Perhaps also a poor actor. 2. Who with his fear is put beside his part, with his fear = out of fear; accompanied by fear. put beside his part = distracted so that he does not remember his part. To be beside oneself is to be in a state of mental turmoil.

      Elizabethans, though, knew better. As late as , nearly a quarter century after his death, he was still remembered as “that famous Writer and Actor, Mr. William Shakespeare.”.   Who really wrote Shakespeare? As James Shapiro's new book rehearses the loony arguments about our greatest playwright, Robert McCrum asks some of today's finest Shakespearean actors and directors.
