    " The ORIGINAL hard-boiled hero! I always put this in my list of favorite mysteries. It's got everything; murder, money, madness and a crazy dame! I read this every few years or months or when ever I spot a copy. "

    " <sub> while i do find shakespear engaging, that is once the teacher translates of course (god bless sparknotes). However i find it rushed, and lengthy.
    I much preferred Othello. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
