    " An excellent student's edition of the essential works of Wm. Shakespeare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Russell | 2/16/2014

    " I continually pick this book up and read it all of the time. I can't say I have read all of it, but many plays are my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 2/16/2014

    " I went into this thinking I was going to love the History plays the most, but found that they left me mostly flat. What did shock me was finding gems among the lesser known plays that I absolutely loved! Plays like Pericles or Titus Andronicus have had me going back to read them two or more times. The well worn classics that we all know need no acclaim from me; I'm sure Hamlet, Mid Summer Night's Dream, Othello and the rest will sit at the top of people's reading lists for ages to come. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erinfinley84 | 2/6/2014

    " Ok, Ok. So maybe I haven't read all of his works, but I've come pretty darn close. After years and years of English courses, I've learned to like good ol' Willy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/3/2014

    " I have a copy from the '40s. It's incredible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry | 1/30/2014

    " Got it.....on my bookshelves. course I like the comedies the best. My fav of all is Macbeth. Tells how satan uses half truths to deceive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Soupyr | 1/15/2014

    " To be honest I'm not sure that I've read every play and sonnet in the book, but I've read most of them, and better yet, I've had the opportunity to see most of the plays performed. If you want to enjoy Shakespeare go and watch one of his comedies in a live performance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia | 1/11/2014

    " I am a fan of everything Shakespeare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 1/9/2014

    " Best edition of the complete works out there right now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Oconnor | 12/30/2013

    " I've read three of the plays....but the sonnets are music..distilled Shakespeare in very few words. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crazy Uncle Ryan | 12/24/2013

    " My dad gave me this book as a gift when I was in high school. You gotta love Shakespeare. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sadie | 12/18/2013

    " I've marked this as read, but I haven't read all of the plays. All the ones I have read are wonderful. His use of language is amazing. I wish I had that ability! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L'Artiste | 11/29/2013

    " Everyone should know this book backwards and forwards. Maybe it's because I'm a drama major, but who doesn't know these stories?!?! So much is to be learned when reading Shakespeare, and he might be one person I would sit down with if given the chance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 11/7/2013

    " I got this one a few years ago and I of course will still be reading it forever...I great hardcover version... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Astrid | 10/25/2013

    " Some plays are brilliant. And then you have Titus Andronicus. Skip the whole collection, and get the best plays separately. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 9/26/2013

    " Great to have but tough to read because of the thick spine "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/27/2013

    " The college class I took on Shakespeare's work really cracked it open for me. Knowledge definitely enhances appreciation when it comes to the Bard. This single-volume text includes everything he's written, with annotations. Over 2,000 tissue-thin pages. I just want to pet it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christel | 1/14/2013

    " I like Julius Caesar, Othello and Hamlet the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carmen Martines | 11/16/2012

    " Yes, I do read Shakespeare. His works tend to infiltrate most of mine. I have been accused of using archaic language, especially when I write poetry; but the master is still the master. I am continually in awe. I guess that's why I am an English Lit major. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca (everyday reader) | 8/19/2012

    " Shakespeare odes, plays. Storytelling at it's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cass | 6/10/2012

    " It is much easier to read Shakespeare NOT in a large clumsy book. It worked best to make copies of what I wanted to read then to read it...but that killed too many trees. So I keep this book as a library piece and buy the plays in smaller format. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CherylFaith Taylor | 6/3/2012

    " time to re-Read all Timeless Classics "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devi | 12/3/2011

    " do I really need to say anything. The man is a genious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Johnson | 9/1/2011

    " I mark this book as read, however I certainly have not read it cover to cover. Rather, I note the individual works I have read by rating them individually. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison Steele | 8/23/2011

    " (Ok, so I haven't read all of it... just the good stuff.) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jane Stubbs | 7/18/2011

    " shakespeare is a talentless hack. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evangeline | 5/22/2011

    " Very handy to have around to refer to, if i was to buy individual copies of all his works it would be costly and take up far too much space. Alhough of course i still like to buy special copies of my favourites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K. | 5/18/2011

    " I haven't read everything in it, obviously, and the 5 stars is mostly because...well, the book has everything Shakespeare and I bought it at a used-book store four years ago, in mint condish, for 20 bucks. If that doesn't deserve a 5, right off the bat, I don't know what does. Bargain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 5/1/2011

    " Believe it or not, I have read them all O.o "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 4/19/2011

    " Didn't read the whole thing of course....but this is the edition I used in college. Very nice annotated edition, however it's a bit bulky. ;-) I kept it, because really, how much is Shakespeare going to change when my kid takes it in college? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 4/14/2011

    " The college class I took on Shakespeare's work really cracked it open for me. Knowledge definitely enhances appreciation when it comes to the Bard. This single-volume text includes everything he's written, with annotations. Over 2,000 tissue-thin pages. I just want to pet it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy | 3/10/2011

    " What do I think well? It one of the greatest books I've read and still reading. I know that I will continue to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Reddie | 3/7/2011

    " So far I've only read Hamlet....so far...just wow. Full Review Coming Later "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Javen | 3/4/2011

    " It is not my intent to review the Riverside. There are several well-wrought "complete works." But nobody even comes close to William Shakespeare of Stratford. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 2/17/2011

    " Whether or not you believe that one man named William Shakespeare wrote these plays, it cannot be denied that they are greatly enjoyable on their own and have influenced countless other works of art throughout the ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 2/10/2011

    " Worth the investment- all of his major and minor tragedies, comedies, histories and romances- plus sonnets. Our professor had made us get a version similar to this one (not leather bound). We read a good portion of it but you can only just scratch the surface with Shakespeare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 2/10/2011

    " I particularly like this annotated edition. Particular attention is paid to both language and historical context. "

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.
