A 400 year legacy of a life’s work in the arts!
Today, the 23rd of April 2016, we commemorate 400 years since the death of the great playwright William Shakespeare. From comedy to history, tragedy to sonnet, there is no doubting the influence Shakespeare has had on the literary world.
There’s no need to head for The Globe this weekend, we can have the very best of Shakespeare, classic and contemporary, his life and works just a click away!!!
But we, at Sagasta, are certainly celebrating it our own way!!! Our 1st IB students have done a superb job and prepared a handmade book for everybody to read. They have paid special attention to the following points:
- 1. Shakespeare
- 2. Elizabethan Theatre
- 3. Romeo and Juliet
- 4. The Tempest
- 5. Richard III
- 6. A Midsummer Night's Dream
Please, have a look!

From Fishmonger to Bite your thumb!
Let´s finish with some very famous Shakespeare´s quotes:
