Correct option is
B

a poet and dramatist.

The indefinite article 'a' is used before unspecific / common nouns. Poet and dramatist are common nouns. It is not required to use the article twice (before poet and dramatist separately) because they both refer to the same person - Shakespeare. Therefore, the correct option is B) a poet and dramatist.
