The Final Years

Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare seems to have returned to live in Stratford-upon-Avon. His wife and his daughters and their husbands lived there, and he owned a large house and other property.

William Shakespeare died in Stratford on April 23, 1616, and was buried on April 25. Seven years after his death, in 1623, his collected plays were published in the work now known as the First Folio.
