The Four Great Tragedies of Shakespeare
Hamlet
Othello
King Lear
Macbeth






Such great heroes as Macbeth, Othello, King Lear,
and Hamlet will always fail because their tragedy is
that while they are great men capable of great deeds,
they cannot withstand the inevitability of the
character flaw that will bring about their own
destruction. They are tragic heroes, doomed by the
perilous conflict within their own hearts.

Poetry
In 1593 and 1594, when the theatres were closed because of plague,
Shakespeare published two narrative poems, Venus and Adonis and
The Rape of Lucrece.
In 1599, two early drafts of sonnets 138 and 144 appeared in The
Passionate Pilgrim.
The Phoenix and the Turtle, printed in Robert Chester's 1601 Love's

edition of the Sonnets in 1609.

Mr. W.H.
The sonnets include a dedication to one "Mr. W.H.".
The identity of this person remains a mystery.
126 of Shakespeare's sonnets

Mr. W. H, perhaps the young man or
not . We dont know exactly the truth.

The initials
'T.T. are taken to
refer to the publisher,
