He, waking, finds the flower near. Each stanza has eight lines an octave and there's an clearly apparent rhyme pattern: "Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Take this quintet from "Every Breath You Take" by The Police: "Since you've gone I been lost without a trace I dream at night I can only see your face I look around but it's you I can't replace I feel so cold and I long for your embrace I keep crying baby, baby, please" Similarly, Aerosmith wrote "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" in sestet form: "I could stay awake just to hear you breathing Watch you smile while you are sleeping While you're far away and dreaming I could spend my life in this sweet surrender I could stay lost in this moment forever Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.

Take a look at his craft in "Make It Rain," a song written in the octave stanza form: "When the sins of my father Weigh down in my soul And the pain of my mother Will not let me go Well, I know there can come fire from the sky To refine the purest of kings And even though I know this fire brings me pain Even so, and just the same" Just like poems, songs can be ballads, explore some Examples of Ballads and you'll see that many of the greats, including Elvis Presley, Elton John, and Eric Clapton are master poets, expressing themselves in lyrical form.

In fact, the playwright continued to make frequent trips to London to collaborate with other playwrights, such as John Fletcher, and to spend time with his son-in-law John Hall, who married his elder daughter Susanna in The playwright was an active dramatist and writer up until when the last of his great works was finished. From then on, Shakespeare spent most of his time in Stratford-upon-Avon, where he had purchased the second-largest home in town for his family.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. William Shakespeare died on April 23, , and was buried at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford two days later, with a curse written on his tombstone to ward off those who would disturb his bones. He was 52 years old at the time of his death and was survived by his wife, Anna, and their two daughters. There are no direct descendants from Shakespeare's line, as both daughters had children who did not make it to adulthood.

Shakespeare was noted both for poetry and plays, with both mediums serving different needs; the plays were related to the theatrical fashion that was on trend while his poetry served to provide storytelling in erotic or romantic ways, culminating in a canon of work that is as diverse in language as the issues of human nature that the works portray. William Shakespeare wrote at least 37 plays that scholars know of, with most of them labeled is comedies, histories, or tragedies. The earliest play that is directly attributed to Shakespeare is the trilogy of "King Henry VI," with Richard III also being written around the same time, between and From histories written in the late s to the early s, Shakespeare moved into comedies, which were described as such for their comic sequences and pairs of plots that intertwined with each other.

Interestingly, two tragedies bookend Shakespeare's comedic era - Romeo and Juliet were written at the beginning of the s, and Julius Caesar was written at the end of the era. For the last portion of his writing career, Shakespeare focused his work on tragedies and "problem" plays. In this era, which is acknowledged as the playwright's best era, he wrote the works called Hamlet , Othello , King Lear , Coriolanus , and Macbeth , among others.

These are the works that are most in production today, both on stage and in film. When looking at a chronology of Shakespeare's plays, it is clear that Shakespeare changed the subjects of his plays as he grew in prominence and then returned to a more serene life. Moving from historical subjects to a more playful side and then, finally, into plays where plots would result in a sense of forgiveness and serenity, Shakespeare's evolution as both a man and a writer is evident.

In fact, the playwright's devotion to the English language and his rebellion against it has led to fascinating studies done by leading literature scholars.

John Dryden

There are two volumes of poetry and over sonnets that are attributed to Shakespeare. It is thought that although Shakespeare was a poet throughout his lifetime, he turned to poetry most notably during and when a plague forced theatres in London to shut down. The volumes of narrative poems that Shakespeare released during those years were called Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. Both volumes focused on the problems surrounding uncontrollable lust and the guilt associated with it afterwards and were very well received during his lifetime, partially for their erotic tone.

In this vein, Shakespeare also wrote A Lover's Complaint , which was included in the first edition of Shakespeare's sonnets, which were released in Shakespeare's sonnets were a collection of over works that were published late in his life and without any indication of when each of the pieces was composed.
