What do we know about Shakespeare’s life?

This FAQ can only provide a brief outline of Shakespeare’s life. You can learn much more from any biography of Shakespeare. Your local public library will have several. I can highly recommend Shakespeare of London by Marchette Chute as an outstanding easy to read biography. The web site Mr. William Shakespeare and the Internet,  http://shakespeare.palomar.edu/ ,has several links to biographical sites.  The Encyclopedia Britannica has articles on Shakespeare's life and world at http://shakespeare.eb.com/shakespeare/ind_shakes.html .  One website has assembled pictures of many of the Elizabethan documents concerning Shakespeare's life. http://fly.hiwaay.net/~paul/shakspere/evidence1.html
