Google Inc. marked the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death with a doodle on Saturday that featured some of bard’s most well-known works.
According to Mashable, in the UK, the doodle reflected both Shakespeare and St. George’s Day, the day that commemorates the patron saint of England, who is known for slaying a dragon.
A creative tour de force, William Shakespeare officially wrote 38 plays in his 52 years, some of which you can spot in Doodle.
Over the past four centuries, Shakespeare’s poems, plays and other works have taken on a life of their own on the page, stage and screen. You can explore some of his works and those he has has inspired in the Shakespeare gallery of Google’s Cultural Institute.
