This boxed set contains 12 separate paperback books (Dover Thrift Editions). They're fairly compact and as such, will fit into my summer travel plans. The box itself is really nice (very solid); it looks pretty good on my shelf and I could see giving this set as a gift. At $15 for 12 books the price is pretty hard to beat.

It is what I was looking for. The box it comes in is firm and I like its presentation. The cover art of each of the books is nice. It fits my needs since I was looking for a box set that would include the Shakespeare plays I would be reading, which I've enjoyed all, and it was more convenient than buying each play individually.

Awesome collection of Shakespeare plays for a great price and gives merely the plays unabridged themselves without forwards/afterwords. This set hits the quintessential Shakespeare plays and includes all of the central Four Great Tragedies. The box itself is rather flimsy, but this is Dover Thrift and we aren't exactly here for the box; nothing arrived to my house damaged so I can't complain. So glad I made this purchase versus purchasing each play individually!

Heigh-ho, broth'r, thee wanteth something most wondrous to readeth? thee should receiveth these books. I purchased these books to brush up on mine Theater. I readeth a few in High School. As an aspiring actor everyone should knoweth their William Shakespeare. Each booketh is most wondrous to bringeth along with thee, or throweth into thy container. Avoid the garbage of today's reality television and readeth history of the Globe Theater. After reading these books and I see many of what todays TV Dramas art based upon.

The books are very compact and I am content with the order. Reading does become a little bit more challenging since the names are cut off and not in bold, but everything else, it's perfect. Just a little note, if you want a translated version, this is not it. It's verily easy to understand Shakespeare, but some might have a problem.

A Kid's Review on July 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
As an actor, I thought it would be helpful to have these plays on hand in separate books instead of one large compilation. The books are thin & very easy to take with me. I would recommend these for anyone, especially those who are love with Mr. Billy Shakes!

While the individual volumes are decidedly "no frills", they were a perfect fit for my 15-year old daughter. These are simply the bard's works, without the plethora of footnotes and idiomatic translations found in other versions. Be prepared to look up those odd words (especially in MacBeth) on your own. A fantastic buy for so many plays. The only addition I would have liked to make would be a copy of his poetry.
