Authors : Maouche Dr. Salima .

Abstract

Shakespeare is undoubtedly the most famous British poet and playwright that human cultures and civilizations have ever witnessed. Although apprehended because of his complex language style, his imaginations and the harsh and rigid messages through the characters of his writings, we can however consider him as the most direct and the most reflecting playwright of human kind. He succeeded to depict the societal wounds whatever their nature was and thus teach a wealth generation about common sense, responsibility, love and determination. Furthermore, the language used, the linguistic features present in his works are therefore, a treasure bank for English language teachers and learners. However, his works are often avoided by EFL teachers as they deem it too complex for their students especially when English is taught and learnt as a foreign language.
