  William Shakespeare (born: 26 April 1564  –   die: 23 April 1616) was an English poet, playwright and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the Bard of Avon . His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, the authorship of some of which is uncertain. Shakespeare was born and  brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and  part-owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613 at age 49, where he died three years later. George Bernard Shaw  (born Dublin, July 26, 1856 - died 2 November 1950 in Hertfordshire) is a novelist, critic, esaias, politician, and orator of the Irish who settled in the UK. In 1898, Shaw married Charlotte Payne-Townshend. On December 18, 1926, he refused the prize money when he received the  Nobel Literature (in 1925) and the Academy Award for Writing Adapted Screenplay (1938 for contributions to literature and for his work on the film Pygmalion). Shaw turned down all other awards and honours, including the offer of a knighthood. While receiving the award at the event, he said, I can forgive Alfred Nobel for inventing dynamite, but only a fiend in human form could receive the Nobel Prize. George Francis Abbott  (June 25, 1887  –   January 31, 1995) was an American theater producer and director, playwright, screenwriter, and film director and producer whose career spanned more than nine decades. Thomas Lanier Tennessee Williams III  (March 26, 1911  –   February 25, 1983) was an American playwright and author of many stage classics. After years of obscurity, he became suddenly famous with The Glass Menagerie (1944), closely reflecting his own unhappy family  background. This heralded a string of successes, including A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Orpheus Descending, and Sweet Bird of Youth. His later work attempted a new style that did not appeal to audiences, and alcohol and drug dependence further inhibited his creative output. Williams adapted much of his best work for the cinema, and also wrote short stories, poetry, essays and a volume of memoirs. In 1979, four years before his death, he was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.  Arthur Asher Miller  (October 17, 1915  –   February 10, 2005) was an American playwright, essayist, and prominent figure in twentieth-century American theatre. Among his plays are All My Sons (1947), Death of a Salesman (1949), The Crucible (1953) andA View from the Bridge (1955, revised 1956). He also wrote the screenplay for the film The Misfits (1961). Miller was often in the public eye, particularly during the late 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s. During this time, he was awarded thePulitzer Prize for Drama; testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee; and was married to Marilyn Monroe. He received the Prince of Asturias Award in 2002 and Jerusalem Prize in 2003. Willibrordus Surendra Broto Rendra  (7 November 1935 - 6 August 2009 in Depok, West Java - aged 73), widely known as Rendra or W. S. Rendra, was an Indonesian dramatist, poet, activist, performer, actor and director.   I Gusti Ngurah Putu Wijaya  (born April 11, 1944), better known simply as Putu Wijaya, was born in Tabanan, Bali.He is anIndonesian author, considered by many to be one of Indonesia's most prominent literary figures. His output is impressive; his published works include more than thirty novels, forty dramas, a hundred short stories, and thousands of essays, articles, screenplays and television dramas, and he has been the recipient of a number of literary prizes.    STEPHANIE 2 IPS 1 Playwright Biographies
