I'm going write about the two most important writers of our golden age: Cervants and Shakespeare. Both of them incidentally died on the same date, but actually Cervantes died on 22nd April and Shakespeare a day later on 23rd April, although their deaths are celebrated on April 23. That day is called the International Book Day in 1995.
Cervants was a soldier, novelist, poet and Spanish playwright. He is universally known for having written "The Don Quixote". It's considered the first modern novel and one of the best works of universal literature. In addition, being the most edited and translated book of history, it was given the nickname of "Prince of the Wits".
Shakespeare was an English playwright,poet and actor. He is also considered the most important writer in the English language. He was known as ' the bard of Avon'. At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway and they had three children.
