2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By V. J. Phillips on January 25, 2013
Format: Hardcover
I have long been looking for a volume of Shakespeare's works that was portable enough to hold without getting a serious biceps workout, and I happened to find this one in a used bookstore. It's marvelous in that the pages are thick enough to highlight and not worry about the bleeding [although I'm using "nonbleeding" highlighters {also wonderful; they're called friXion highlighters by Pilot. Highly suggest them, though they don't always erase, which is really no surprise.}]

However, that handiness comes at a price: there are some spelling errors, and I wouldn't be surprised if there are more errors than that in here. By no means should you use this volume for scholarship of any kind.

All in all, though, it's a very handy and accessible, very readable volume (in verse, at least; some of the prose passages look a bit cramped) that, as I said, won't make your arms give out from the heft of it.

5 stars for size, page thickness, and readability
1 star for poor editing

I bought the comedies and tragedies from this series years ago in Stratford, UK. They didn't have the histories, but I was happy to, years later, find a reasonably-priced copy on Amazon. (What CAN'T you find on Amazon these days?) Now my set is complete & if I ever want to reminisce about high school English, William is waiting for me. ;)

More About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in April 1564, and his birth is traditionally celebrated on April 23. The facts of his life, known from surviving documents, are sparse. He was one of eight children born to John Shakespeare, a merchant of some standing in his community. William probably went to the King's New School in Stratford, but he had no university education. In November 1582, at the age of eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway, eight years his senior, who was pregnant with their first child, Susanna. She was born on May 26, 1583. Twins, a boy, Hamnet ( who would die at age eleven), and a girl, Judith, were born in 1585. By 1592 Shakespeare had gone to London working as an actor and already known as a playwright. A rival dramatist, Robert Greene, referred to him as "an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers." Shakespeare became a principal shareholder and playwright of the successful acting troupe, the Lord Chamberlain's Men (later under James I, called the King's Men). In 1599 the Lord Chamberlain's Men built and occupied the Globe Theater in Southwark near the Thames River. Here many of Shakespeare's plays were performed by the most famous actors of his time, including Richard Burbage, Will Kempe, and Robert Armin. In addition to his 37 plays, Shakespeare had a hand in others, including Sir Thomas More and The Two Noble Kinsmen, and he wrote poems, including Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. His 154 sonnets were published, probably without his authorization, in 1609. In 1611 or 1612 he gave up his lodgings in London and devoted more and more time to retirement in Stratford, though he continued writing such plays as The Tempest and Henry VII until about 1613. He died on April 23 1616, and was buried in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford. No collected edition of his plays was published during his life-time, but in 1623 two members of his acting company, John Heminges and Henry Condell, put together the great collection now called the First Folio.
