The mistakes in Shakespeare's writings

William Shakespeare is easily one of the greatest writers to have ever existed on planet earth. He possessed raw individualism that put him on a pedestal and made him a legend, as a result. His writings were original, yet universal and he wrote, what he wrote because he wanted to, not because it was expected. Despite being such an amazing writer who could project his words and make you believe what he wrote, he wasn't perfect. In fact, there have been quite a few mistakes to contemplate, as well as, debate in Shakespeare's writings.

Most critics and theorists believe that Shakespeare's spelling was his primary mistake in writing, hence why it was quite observant he wasn't a Harvard graduate. Shakespeare wasn't a good speller and that was certain, however; that didn't matter. You could still understand what he said or what he meant. Shakespeare's writing possessed meaning that went beyond his spelling. Although Shakespeare's spelling was rather poor, the structure of his sentences has been debated by individual theorists. Many believe that Shakespeare took words and just slapped them together without thinking. Does it make it true? Absolutely not.

I find Shakespeare's biggest mistake his extreme use of deconstructionism. In the 1500s-1600s persuasion, people were amazingly unfamiliar with deconstruction and some people didn't appreciate it, as much as they do now. Deconstruction represents originality that may or may not add color to writing. Shakespeare existed in an era and in an age that we did not live in. If you can learn to appreciate originality, you can learn to accept deconstruction for what it is. Shakespeare would use a variety of words and phrases that would be interpreted differently to every writer versus the same the majority of status quo.

Some theorists believe that when we write, we must construct our words first before adding anything else. Taking words and adding individual premises, before deciding on the meaning. Does that make sense? Perhaps to some, perhaps to none, however; I believe what separates William Shakespeare from your average writer is the fact he felt what he wrote and didn't care about how it was constructed. What you read from Shakespeare is clearly what defied him. He connected with his words on quite a few wavelengths and made you believe what he wrote. In spite of his mistakes, those mistakes are nothing in comparison to his strengths.
