The Complete Works of William Shakespeare collects all thirty-seven of the writer’s comedies, tragedies, and historical plays. This volume also features Shakespeare’s complete poetry, including the sonnets.
Hamlet. Romeo and Juliet. Henry V. Macbeth. A Midsummer Night’s Dream. King Lear. Lovers of literature will immediately recognise these as signature works of William Shakespeare, whose plays still rank as the greatest dramas ever produced in the English language four centuries after they were written.
Since its first publication in 1951, this book has been praised as one of the most authoritative editions of Shakespeare’s works. Now completely reset in a reader- friendly format, it continues to provide a reliable and straightforward text for the reader.
Edited by Professor Peter Alexander, this updated edition also includes:
-A brief biography of Shakespeare by Germaine Greer
-An introduction to his theatre by Anthony Burgess
- New introductions to the plays and poems written by a team from Glasgow University, and
- An essay on the significance of the Alexander text; and a glossary with 2,500 words and phrases.
This is a complete volume, available to coincide with the Museum exhibition, Shakespeare: staging the world.
