PowerPoint Presentation:

ABOUT POET William Shakespeare (26 April 1564 (baptized) – 23 April 1616)was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist . He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays,154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright . Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men.

Infancy: In this stage he is a helpless baby and knows little. Childhood: It is that stage of life that he begins to go to school. He is unwilling to leave the protected environment of his home as he is still not confident enough to exercise his own discretion. The lover : In this stage he is always remorseful due to some reason or other, especially the loss of love. He tries to express feelings through song or some other cultural activity. The soldier : It is in this age that he thinks less of himself and begins to think more of others. He is very easily aroused and is hot headed. He is always working towards making a reputation for himself and gaining recognition, however short-lived it may be, even at the cost of his own life. The justice : In this stage he has acquired wisdom through the many experiences he has had in life. He has reached a stage where he has gained prosperity and social status. He becomes very attentive of his looks and begins to enjoy the finer things of life. Pantaloon: He begins to lose his charm — both physical and mental. He begins to become the butt of others joke. He loses his firmness and assertiveness, and shrinks in stature and personality. Childishness: He loses his status and he becomes a non-entity. He becomes dependent on others like a child and is in need of constant support before finally dying. THE AGES

All the world’s stage And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His act being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms. Then the whining schoolboy, with the satchel And the shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwilling to school. And then the lover,

Sighing like a furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress’s eyebrow. And then the justice In fair round belly with good capon lined, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation even in the cannon's mouth. Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts

PowerPoint Presentation:

Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side, His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, Sans eyes, Sans taste, ..……..Sans everything
