Google pays tribute to William Shakespeare and St George with Doodle New Delhi: Another masterpiece by Google Doodle honouring the legends, William Shakespeare, and St George.

"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."

People across the world have been inspired by the words of one of the most eloquent voices of all times, William Shakespeare. He was a marvelous writer, poet, dramatist and an actor.  

Today, we mark the 400th death anniversary of The Bard. William Shakespeare was born on 26th April 1564 and died on 23rd April 1616.

His abiding work is composed of 38 plays, 154 sonnets and two long narrative poems. Ranging from comedies and histories to tragedies and romances, he had penned down almost all emotions.

Google decided to pay tribute to the legendary author by its doodle, which has William Shakespeare in the middle and eight of his famous play's glimpses surrounding him.

From Shakespeare's left, firstly it is the Hamlet with the Prince holding skull, and then is Julius Ceaser where we see Brutus holding knife behind Ceaser, next to which is Desdemona's handkerchief from Othello, followed by the famous balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet.

On Shakespeare's right is a shipwreck scene from either The Tempest or from The Comedy of Errors. Adjoining to the shipwreck is a king sitting on a throne, King Lear.

Succeeding the king are the witches from Macbeth, and lastly we have a donkey-headed man sitting underneath a tree, scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Saint George's Day is the feast day of Saint George, the patron saint of England and famous for slaying a dragon. This day is celebrated by many Christians Churches in various nations.
