Bloom considers William Shakespeare the ultimate writer. Little is known about the author himself, but the works—from the sonnets through the history plays and tragedies, reveal an enormously playful sensibility that is marked by a deep affection for human individual and the possibility of change and growth. According to Bloom, the ability to develop as a person was effectively invented by Shakespeare, and each of Shakespeare's characters has, to Bloom's mind, a unique personality.
