The Complete Works contains the texts of all Shakespeare's plays, poems and sonnets, edited by leading Shakespeare scholars for the renowned Arden series. A general introduction gives the reader an overall view of how and why Shakespeare has become such an influential cultural icon, and how perceptions of his work have changed in the intervening four centuries. The introduction summarizes the known facts about the dramatist's life, his reading and use of sources, and the nature of theatrical performance during his lifetime.—McMillan Palgrave



"Don't think of Shakespeare as highbrow—he loved fart jokes! He had a good eye for human nature that remains relevant today."—Submitted by Bill W., Communications & Marketing
