ment at Stratford, where he died. Few writers have sounded the depths of the human heart as Shakespeare. His plays not only reflect the many problems which

were stirring in men's minds in his own day; they are a storehouse of truths and lessons which are the same for all ages, showing always the ultimate triumph of good over evil in its many forms. Apart from his genius as dramatist, he is a teacher—the greatest (among writers at least) that the world has ever

seen.

“ The Escape of Mary Queen of

Scots" from "The Abbot." Shakespeare, William (1564-1616).

-Though Shakespeare's name is the greatest in our literature, yet know comparatively little of the details of his life. Born at Stratford-on-Avon, where his father was a progperous burgess, Shakespeare married at 17, and after some five or six years, in consequence probably of the declining fortunes of his family, left his wife and three children at Stratford, and went himself to London, where he became an actor, and was also employed to alter old plays. After about five years of this humble labour, he began to produce original dramas. These have been divided by critics into three groups or periods of composition. The first, from 1590 to 1596, consists of English historical plays, of comedies, and the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet ;” also the beautiful and fanciful “Midsummer Night's Dream." Then came the “Merchant of Venice." The next group, written between 1601-1608, contains the great tragedies, “Hamlet,” “Othel

“ Macbeth,” and others, and the graver comedies, such

“Much Ado about Nothing." After 1608, Shakespeare produced the peaceful and beautiful romantic plays,

Cymbeline,” “The Winter's Tale,” and “The Tempest.” His sonnets were probably written between 1595--1605. The last five years of Shakespeare's life were spent with his family in comfortable retire
