From the Publisher
William Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest playwright,
indeed writer, of all time. In flamboyant detail he brought to life
the history and mythology of the world with 38 plays, over 150
exquisite sonnets and a number of fine long poems. Whether it's the
Comedies or Tragedies, the Histories or Romances, his work glitters
with a humanity and vitality that we still respond to today.
This brand new illustrated edition is based on work carried out by
Hemings, Condell and many subsequent skilled editors to bring the
complete works of Shakespeare to a modern audience. With over on
hundred beautiful painting and hundreds of woodcuts and engravings,
this stunning new version reveals a legacy of language and drama
that still permeates the fhythm of our daily lives, in theatre,
poetry, literature, movies and digital media.
