William Shakespeare

Carl D. Atkins has studied Shakespeare for decades.

Dr. Atkins has made a complete metrical analysis of all 154 poems, which serves as an excellent companion to Shakespeare's Sonnets Among His Private Friends.

Personality Profile For William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare

The following is a personality profile of William Shakespeare based on his work.

William Shakespeare is expressive and unconventional.

He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is proud as well: he holds himself in high regard, satisfied with who he is. But, William Shakespeare is also empathetic: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them.

More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for discovery.

He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers independence to guide a large part of what he does: he likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
