    This book should be required both as a reference book and as required reading in every household library!!!

    I possess many volumes of "Complete Shakespeares", but if I was only able to keep one, this would be it. The binding, paper quality, type face, and readability are all the best. Hence a "five star" rating in all categories. If I were marooned on an island and could only have one book, without question it would be the Complete Pelican Shakespeare.

    A Must-Own for Shakespeare Lovers

    Overall, a lovely production. All of the Bard's work is presented in highly readable format and type, annotated effectively. The essays preceding each work, and those opening the book overall, are excellent - while long-time readers of Shakespeare might not agree with every interpretation, they will find even the most disputable ones provocative. It's a big book, not designed for toting on a plane ride, but it's much more than a "reference" book. At least read the essays before tackling the plays or poems. They alone are worth much more than the price of the book!

    Whole collection all in one place.

    This is a massive tome, but it is a beautiful addition to any home library.
