William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare is considered by many to be the greatest writer in the English language. A playwright and poet, he was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in England in 1564 and, after a long, successful career in London, died in 1616.   He is currently the head of the writing department in the next world, managing many idiosyncratic authors and poets, including Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman. His most infuriating employee is Edgar Allan Poe, a rule-breaker who never misses an opportunity to break the rules by communicating world-to-world with his great-great-great-great-grandnephews.
