I just want to put in a plug for Ian McKellen's Richard III. Set between the world wars with a stellar cast. Most loathsome Richard ever.

For the complete works I prefer the layout/presentation at Bartleby.com.

Reading is great, but go to a theater. I'm getting ready for the annual local Shakespeare binge, with productions from Iceland, SK, UK, Germany, Poland, Italy, Romania, etc.

I'll derail ask for a sidebar and ask if anyone knows of a good site like this for Charles Dickens? That would be brilliant.

Oooh, she has a Bachelor of Arts degree! And with honors, too! Don't you generally need a bit more schooling before you start sticking academic degrees in there after your name?

persona non grata: I love Bartleby too. The one thing I love though about the first link I posted is they have an option for the entire play in one page.

there is no real reason whatsoever to assume that Shakespeare did not write his own works.

Oh, well I guess that settles the authorship question. I have no idea what all those PhD's are chattering on about.

Kit's Agent: This is a great script! Look, it's not Shakespeare, but it...
Kit: Hey, what did you just say?
Agent: I said, 'it's not Shakespeare'...
Kit: 'It's not Shake...', 'It's not Shake..' (to Freddy) Do you hear what he's doing?
Freddy: I know he's doing something, I just can't put my finger on it. Yeah, yeah, yeah... What's he doing?
Kit: Shakespeare, Freddy, Shakespeare!
Freddy: Shakespeare?
Kit: Shake a spear! Spearchucker! I'm a spearchucker now!


Ah, Bowfinger, how I love thee...

That's OK, neither do they, not the ones claiming Shakespeare was actually Lord Bigfoote of Area 51 or whoever the latest chosen one is.

When I first saw "www.shakespeare-online.com" I had the uncanny fear that it was a new MMORPG. That... would be the bestworst idea ever.
