Overview

The main rules which we proposed to ourselves in undertaking this Edition are as follows:
1. To base the text on a thorough collation of the four Folios and of all the Quarto editions of the separate plays, and of subsequent editions and commentaries.
2. To give all the results of this collation in notes at the foot of the page, and to add to these conjectural emendations collected and suggested by ourselves, or furnished to us by our correspondents, so as to give the reader in a compact form a complete view of the existing materials out of which the text has been constructed, or may be emended.
3. In all plays of which there is a Quarto edition differing from the received text to such a degree that the variations cannot be shown in foot-notes, to print the text of the Quarto literatim in a smaller type after the received text.

This ebook has really revived my enthusiasm for Shakespeare. Having all of Shakespeare's texts in one ebook allows me to go quickly to another play to look something up or spot cross-connections. That can be very exciting. The tales of Shakespeare still speak today. We just need to open our ears and our hearts so we can listen. In short, this comprehensive edition has truly enriched my reading of Shakespeare.

I own a simple touch and this e-book takes anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes to load if it does at all - then to boot none of the links in the contents work. It also freezes and shuts down my nook. if your looking for the complete works go to "The Complete Works: William Shakespeare - optimized for nook by lotus." So much better!!

The plays display well. The plays are formated well. I like the layout. The Table of Contents is the BEST available for such an extensive collection. Its outright fun to navigate. Buy this one.

It is very frustrating that there is not a copy of a good Shakespeare collection--one that separates out the two different versions of King Lear, for example, or one that actually contains footnotes/additional information as you read. Make an electronic version of the Riverside Shakespeare collection--something, in other words for Shakespeare lovers!
