William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language.


The book Shakespeare I-XV was seen in the book case at Enriched Learning Center for Gifted Children.[2]

When watching The Bloodening, Nelson said that he had never liked Shakespeare before now.[3]

When Homer was complaining about having kids, he said he could have written symphonies or been Shakespeare.[4]

A picture of Shakespeare was on the wall of the bookstore Rock Bottom Remainders.[5]

Before Homer let Lisa use his new Mapple Void he downloaded the complete works of Shakespeare as a pdf. When it was finished he threw the file in the trash and asked who the greatest writer of all time was now.[6]

Shakespeare was also seen as a character in the film Love, Indubitably. He was seen naked, with a skull over his crotch, dancing.[7]

After discovering that a snack provides glucose to the brain, and around 4pm people are more reckless when making choices, Lisa wished she was born on "the isle that gave us Shakespeare and Stephen Merchant" because the British have tea and scones at 4pm.[8]

Shakespeare was on the cover of The New York Times Book Review.[9]

After the first showing of the play The Salesman's Bad Day, finished, William Shakespeare's ghost appeared alongside the ghosts of Arthur Miller, Hyman Krustofsky and Krusty the Clown's humor. Shakespeare said that all's well that ends well and Arthur Miller asked Shakespeare how it ended well as Krusty was ruining his play. Shakespeare then said that Miller had other good plays, then corrected himself. Miller then said that he was America's greatest playwright, to which Shakespeare sarcastically responded "exactly".[1]
