Yet despite all the knowledge of his work, little is known of the life of Shakespeare. We know nothing of his life in London . . .

The word/expression “_______________________________________”

_________________________________________________________

The word/expression “_______________________________________”

  1. God – I hate linking questions, no idea what to do with them!!

    The words “Yet despite all the knowledge” .connect to the previous sentence which describes that most people are aware of who Shakespeare is.

    The words “Little is known of the life of Shakespeare introduce the rest of the paragraph which tell the reader we know nothing about his life in London.

    1. When linking back and forward ensure the explanation part is in your own words and does not repeat words from the passage.
