Complete Works of William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616) is acknowledged as the greatest dramatist of all time. He excels in plot, poetry, and wit, and his talent encompasses the great tragedies of Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, and Macbeth, as well as the moving history plays and the comedies such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, and As You Like It with their magical combination of humor, ribaldry and tenderness. This volume is a reprint of the highly regarded Shakespeare Head Press edition, and it presents all the plays in the chronological order - as far as may be ascertained - in which they were written. It also includes Shakespeare's sonnets and his longer poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucree. A Wordsworth Classic.
Wordsworth classics are complete, unabridged editions of timeless literature and poetry offered at a very affordable price. Each one is delightfully illustrated and carefully reprinted to appeal to the general public while preserving its high quality. Some of the most popular novels to study in school, such as Uncle Tom's Cabin and Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, include more in-depth, insightful introductions as well as helpful notes in the back of the book to offer readers definitions or background to words or phrases appearing in the text. ~ Steph
