William Shakespeare, acclaimed to be one of the greatest literary figures in history, is known all over the world for his forty plays and one-hundred fifty-four sonnets encompassing romance. Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon in the late 1500s where he attended basic grammar school and began his career as a playwright and author (Gaines 18). Shakespeare’s culmination of love at the center of his work gives it the flare necessary to maintain its relevance to modern day literature. The romantic genre has enchanted audiences since biblical times, was expertly developed through the sonnets and plays of the famed William Shakespeare, and flourishes today within popular literature and motion pictures of today. The timeless theme of love, not only amid couples but between parents and their children as well, has existed throughout literature dating as far back as the Bible and continues to thrive in the works of today.
