Since the dawn of civilization, our beautiful planet has been endowed with so many geniuses. Blessings have been showered on them by the Omnipotent to enrich the soil of the earth. The world has been flooded with ecstasy and joviality to have them as her gifts. Such a personality is William Shakespeare, the greatest dramatist in English literature, the greatest of all, whose name is uttered with great reverence till today. 

He is for ages, for decades, for all, for all societies, for all countries. Maybe, he wrote for the people of Elizabethan era and the English, but his works are read and enjoyed by the people knowing English all over the world. His fame transcends the boundary of his homeland. Such an amazing blessing Shakespeare was! But what was the secret of his universality? Which mystery lies in his writings that has made him so great? What charisma reigns there? And what is the magnanimity of his works?

Actually, he travelled through the inner part of human mind. He possessed a keen insight by virtue of which he could seek the complexities of human soul and could get them out in broad day light. He made them appear before the readers and audience to run the truth of life, to unveil the beauty of life and sometimes, bitter reality. Shakespearean drama is like an ever-flowingstream of life and beauty, and the thirsty people, seeking art and truth, can quench their thirst from it to their heart's content. 

A cosmic power, shouldering upon him, used to push him to sketch this on the canvas of his mind and bring to light through writing. He made use of the empiricism which he came across on his perilous journey of life. The more we approach his creation, the more we become bewildered. He has depicted the good and the evil, the wicked and the virtuous with same loving care. In this respect, he has been entirely objective and impartial. He is like the proverbial sun which dazzles the just and unjust alike.  Though Shakespeare can laugh incomparably, mere laughter makes him weary. He has often made a blending of humor and pathos in a subtle way skillfully. A perfect interpretation of the tragic and comic, of the pathos and the gay appears in his mature art. When we go through his tragedies, we notice that his humor serves to enliven the general atmosphere of melancholy, to dispel tragic tensions, and to heighten the effect of the scene that follows. 

Without Shakespeare, English literature tends to be incomplete. If Shakespeare was not born, English literature would wear a deserted look. He appears just like the sun in the sky of English literature without whom its arena would be drowned into the darkness.
