Shakespeare invented nearly 1,700 common English words.
As recently as the courts of Elizabeth I and James VI, French was regarded as the language of culture and diplomacy, even while English was enjoying an unprecedented ascendency in the hands of men like Shakespeare and Milton. the French court was a dominant force in many parts of Europe. English is a creolized language and before the Tudors it was considered mostly the mean language of peasants. That changed of course, and English has taken its place as a formidable international language in areas of culture diplomacy and commerce.
The Early Modern English period not only provided us with an astonishing amount of wonderful literature, not only from the big names of Spenser, Shakespeare and Milton, but also from numerous other lesser writers and the compilers of the King James Bible but also saw a huge increase in English vocabulary as a result of these writers, and a long-term influence on style, particularly by Shakespeare and the Bible.
Well, that happens. And it's no serious impediment to life or a career in literature. In truth, Shakespeare is more popular then Milton, anyway. In fact, and in all seriousness, "admire" for Milton and "love" for Shakespeare are very good descriptors for the difference that people feel for those two.

I may be interpreting your question incorrectly, but I'm going to answer this question in 2 parts.1. You may be asking who was Shakespeare - Shakespeare was a poet and playwrite.2. Many poems exist that refer to Shakespeare. Here are some examples:In Remembrance of Master William Shakespeare by Sir William Davenant.On Shakespeare`s Sonnets by MiltonShakespeare by Matthew Arnold
John Milton daringly attempted cosmic themes in regard to the lives and destiny of man, which in itself was a bold change from the old themes. The old themes in English Poetry and poetry elsewhere centred on themes consisting of heroic acts of kings, knights, demons and angels. Milton brought theme to the life of the lowly man and his indebtedness to his creator. It is true that whoever reads and sings his Paradise Lost will begin to think on similar lines and begin to write poems with the same words, tune and imagery, which was exactly what happened in his times. Thus John Milton pivoted the old style of writing in English Poetry to what is more good, popular and practical. It depends on what is meant by 'the old style of writing' if this is the transition between middle english and modern english (the instead of ye) then shakespeare is most likely the protaganist in this process. English, per se is a constantly evolving language, it steals and absorbs, changes and makes its own. It has its own sub categories as in 'American english' which is distinctly owned by that continent.
