More About William Shakespeare & Stephen Orgel

William Shakespeare William Shakespeare 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 extant works include some collaboration, consisting of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, the authorship of some of which is uncertain. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

William Shakespeare lived in Stratford-Upon-The Avon. William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and died in 1616.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A "complete Shakespeare" should actually be complete.  May 1, 2008
Why do we buy "complete" editions of Shakespeare, when individual plays are available in many excellent editions, reasonably priced, eminently portable, and offering far richer commentary than will ever be available in a single volume?

The one reason I can provide is that a "complete" Shakespeare is--or ought to be--just that: complete, including everything the author is generally understood to have written.

This edition of the Pelican Shakespeare has many virtures: it is handsome, high-quality, and features thoughtful and thorough introductions to the plays, along with good annotations.

But it falls flat on the claim it makes in its very title: it is not complete. "The Two Noble Kinsmen" is nowhere to be found, although the introductions to several different plays mention it and acknowledge it as Shakespeare's. Many scholars believe that at least one scene of another play, "Sir Thomas More," is likely to be by Shakespeare, and yet another play, "Edward III," has a great deal of support for partial Shakespeare attribution as well. These items are routinely included in modern editions of Shakespeare. They are absent here, and the editors give us no explanation at all for the omissions. This is a substantial oversight, and makes it difficult to recommend this edition.

To anyone looking to read a little Shakespeare, I would encourage you to pick up a Folger and a Signet single-play edition, and see which suits your taste better. If you are set on a one-volume Shakespeare, I have to suggest you get one that is actually "complete"--Riverside, perhaps, or the new RSC.
The most readable edition  Aug 5, 2007
I have several complete Shakespeare editions, and the Pelican stands out as the most readable I own. The book is, of course, large and thick, but the paper is not see-through, and the type is large enough for those of us with aging eyes. The text is in two columns with footnotes at the bottom of each column, making it easy to skip from words to notes and back again.

Best of all, as an owner of the Arkangel Shakespeare on CD, the Pelican is the text they use for these recordings, so following the text in print when listening to those excellent audio versions is perfect with this edition. While there is not a lot of critical apparatus - any Shakesperean worth his or her salt already has several books analyzing the plays - this volume offers a great readability for its cost. A must-have.
Complete  Mar 11, 2007
works really well if you are taking multiple classes with Shakespeare as required reading or if you just love Shakespeare in general
Stick to this one  Jan 21, 2007
After reading the Pelican edition of The Merchant of Venice, I knew this was the Complete Shakespeare edition I wanted to buy. The footnotes are excellent and the essays are a great introduction to the plays, especially to the beginner Shakespeare reader. For a deeper and more detailed review of each book, I would recommend Asimov's Guide to Shakespeare.
Best Ever  Nov 15, 2006
I have three different Complete Works of Shakespeare and this one is the best. It has great footnotes and intoductions. The cover does get damaged pretty fast, which is the only draw back I see. It doesn't break, but gets dirty. I'm not sure why, but everyone in my class has dirty books.
