William Shakespeare was an English playwright, poet and actor. He is widely regarded as the greatest and most influential writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. His most famous plays include Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello and Romeo & Juliet. Hamlet has probably been discussed more than any other Shakespearean character, especially for his famous soliloquy which begins with "To be or not to be; that is the question". His plays have been translated in all languages and his works continue to be studied and reinterpreted to this day. The moons circling around the planet of Uranus are mostly named after characters from Shakespeare plays, including Oberon, Ariel, and Juliet.
