Welcome to the Folger Shakespeare Library, where you can discover a ton of information about Shakespeare and his works.
I suggest starting your journey in the Discover Shakespeare section. It is divided into more categories, they are:
Shakespeare’s Life – here you will learn all about the man himself, from his humble beginnings in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon to his success in London as an actor and writer. You can use the links that appear on the side menu when you click into this section to navigate or click the ones after the introductory brief biography of Shakespeare.
Shakespeare’s Works – this is the legacy that Shakespeare left behind him, and some of the world’s most treasured literature. Here, you’ll learn about his plays, poems, and learn about the first folio of his works published.
Shakespeare’s Theater – here you can learn about the different theaters where Shakespeare’s troop of actors performed.
There are more sections under Discover Shakespeare, but the last one I want to tell you about is Shakespeare for Kids, where you’ll find great activities for them to do, like a word puzzle, coloring picture, games, and challenges. I think this is really neat, I can still remember leafing through my mom’s books and discovering Shakespeare for myself as a kid.
