Nobody knows exactly when or why Shakespeare left his boyhood home of Stratford-on-Avon for the great city of London, but it didn't take long for him to make a name for himself. His plays are now performed almost every day in just about every part of the world, and even people who have never seen them use words and phrases he introduced into the English language. How did a man from an unremarkable family create a legacy that the world will never forget? There will always be unsolved mysteries about Shakespeare, but what we do know of his life, his times, and his theater makes a dramatic and exciting story.
