No, of course not. They were writing stage plays in ancient Greece 2000 years before Shakespeare. The Romans wrote plays as well. Shakespeare was not even the first English playwright.

Actors and directors read the script before they put on the play.
Nobody knows this for sure, because we cannot tell for sure when and in what order his plays were written. We cannot answer this because we can only speculate as to the order in which Shakespeare wrote his plays, and different lists will have a different play in the eleventh spot.

Imagine Shakespeare as a writer of screenplays for a TV series. Viewers are not going to watch the same show week after week. They need new material all the time, or they lose viewers to reality TV (which in Shakespeare's day was bearbaiting). It was the same with Shakespeare. Records show that the playhouses like the Globe presented a bewildering variety of plays, presenting new plays constantly. Remember that Shakespeare was not the only playwright… Read More

I am having trouble making sense of your question. "The Shakespeare Play Positions" sounds like a new play which is either very avante-garde or pornographic or both. Do you mean, "In what positions did people watch Shakespeare's plays?"? If so, the answer is standing up and sitting down.

We don't know. Shakespeare left no diaries, blogs or other outpourings of his personal views on any subject. We have no idea what he "thought about" any of the characters in his plays, or about any of his plays. It doesn't matter. Even if we knew what Shakespeare thought of the characters in the story it would not help us understand the story in the least. Nor would it be of any help to know… Read More
