Shakespeare’s plays are a standard study in schools for good reason. Sure, not all students will immediately appreciate why he was the greatest writer of all time, but the better they understand this the more they’ll get from his works.

So we’ve put together this collection of key quote posters to put up in your classroom for some of the Bard’s most-studied plays at Key Stage 3 and 4.

Click on any of the images below to download 10 colourful quotation posters for each play (six for The Merchant of Venice) and a worksheet with these quotes included for students to analyse or take notes.
