Did William Shakespeare invent teenagers?


i am writing an essay on the emergence of teenagers in literature. Do you think Shakespeare created the concept of teenagers? Do you think today’s teenagers are similar or different than the teenagers in Shakespeare’s work?


I completely disagree! SOME teenagers might be irrational and wild, but not all. I would never pretend to kill myself and then REALLY kill myself over a boy. My parents say I am mature and I pride myself on that. Not all teenagers fall into the archetype of the “rebellious teen.”
