Meet the Author

William Shakespeare ( 26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616)was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613 at age 49, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.

    SO MUCH BETTER THAN TWO BEST-SELLLERS

    The essays explaining how each issue of grammar, spelling, pronunciation and more were considered and resolved were fascinating. So many threads required to weave a volume that is faithful to the source and easy for a modern reader to understand!

    And no irritating blank pages popping in at random.

    AND that is just the sample!!

    If your a fan of Shakespeare this is a must buy.

    This version includes all the plays and all the poems. It is really a fantastic deal. Now here is where this book is different from the other Shakespeare collections: it is MUCH EASIER to read because the character names are offset from the dialogue.

    I will say nothing about the works themselves, as the name "Shakespeare" speaks for itself. What I liked about this particular version was the formatting for the plays for Nook. I cannot say if it is the best or not. However, I took a few minutes to look at several of the many versions available and liked this the best of these. The presentation of the sonnets is simple and servicable.
    The Navigation is also perfect, with a main TOC linking you to every play, and every play has its own TOC linking you to the specific ACTS and SCENES. If you're a fan of Shakespeare or even just a fan of books in general, this is a no brainer.

    Highly Recommended!

    Although this might suffice for a casual reader, anyone seeking to use this version as an academic reference will be dissapointed.
