It should be "known for". So, you are left with A and E. E has two independent clauses. So, it should be separated by ";". Left with option A, which is correct.

I am confused with the OA. shouldn't which modify the word right before it. Here, which is after Shakespeare and he is obviously not a poem....

Thoughts?

I agree but I think Epitaph on Shakespere is the name of the poem. If that is the case then "which" is correct.

No option is fitting into the statement other than A. We can easily cross out other options. In option A "which" is used in a correct way referring to Epitaph on Shakespeare.
