In Julius Caesar, Shakespeare writes, "Men at some time are masters of their fate."  That time, my young friends, is now, for you truly are master's of your fate on this Shakespearean Webquest.  Why, you ask, must you endure the "slings and arrows" of this outrageous webquest?  The answer is because "it is the mind that makes the body rich."  And, to promote your mind's enrichment, you will examine the biography, historical time period, environment, and significance of Mr. William Shakespeare.  However, since "'Tis better to be brief than tedious," I think it is time that you began.
