William Shakespeare was a famous English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language.

In 1916, Indiana Jones recognized Robert Graves as having quoted Shakespeare's Richard II which prompted Siegfried Sassoon to ask Jones his opinion on Dreamers, one of Sassoon's poems.

Four years later, Jones told Kate Rivers that Shakespeare was his favorite poet.

Shakespeare was quoted on a plaque in Venice's Biblioteca di San Barnaba in 1938: "Charming town. I was particularly taken with a tradesman I met."

Behind the scenesEdit

The library quote is a humorous LucasArts reference to one of Shakespeare's plays, The Merchant of Venice.
