It is an interesting article on how they put the collection together, including the Introduction and notes of some famous plays of Shakespeare.
The works of William Skakedpeare
One star because I must to have my say This is not what it was purported to be. I'm sorry I bothered It is not Shakespeare's plays, but a lot of blather. I'm glad I didn't pay for it
This is nine volumes?
By Mark D R Stern
I got this thinking that nine volumes must be the collected works. Yet, it is a 153 page introduction.
You will have to buy the plays individually.
This is just the Preface!
While this is an interesting article on how they put the collection together, there is no actual complete work of Shakespeare included in this volume. The other two-thirds of the book is filled with ads for other publications. Thank God this was free.
