APTOPIX BRITAIN SHAKESPEARE PORTRAIT450 years ago, (probably) on April 23rd 1564, William Shakespeare (Shakspere / Shakspear / Shakespere / Shakspere / Shaxper / Shake- speare , polonised – Szekspir) was born in Stratford -upon-Avon, a poet (author of 154 sonnets and several poems), a playwright and an actor, a member of the Lord Chamberlain's Men troupe, since 1603 bearing the name of the Royal Troupe (King's Men), a co-owner of the Globe Theatre; as an author of at least 38 dramas (some as a result of a collaboration with other writers in accordance with a practice exercised at the time) – comedies, tragedies, historical chronicles (histories) and tragicomedies – widely considered to be the greatest dramatic poet of all time next to Sophocles and Calderon; a devout monarchist, a believer of the Legitimist royal mystique of “The King’s Two Bodies ", an opponent of tyranny and democracy; in all likelihood (the " lancasterian theories ") associated with the aristocratic and recusant Hoghton family, a participant of a Catholic conspiracy, also having ties with the Jesuits (martyr Fr Campion, Father Parsons), during the so-called Lost Years (1585-1592) a student at a college for English Catholics in Reims and Douai, perhaps even studying as (Arthurus Stratford Wigorniensis, D. Shfordus Cestrensis or Gulielmus Clerkue Stratfordiensis) in the English College in Rome, certainly providing in his works ample evidence of his fidelity to the Catholic dogma, liturgy, cosmology and anthropology, and expressing deep respect for the monastic life despised so much by the Protestants; he "Died a papist " in 1616 (the same day as Cervantes in Madrid).
