can be found here for free: http://shakespeare.mit.edu/ - expired copyright and all that.

personally i prefer to read an actual book with actual pages made from actual paper, and to that end - HOT!

(btw, does anyone know if this includes his poetry or just his plays?)

Superb deal, and far more cultured than watching 'Prisoner Cell Block H' (cheaper too!)

To buy, or not to buy, that is the question.

Personally I find his plays a bit 'samey' and feel that it's about time he released some new stuff.

Very hot deal. This is the type of thing that will easily become collectable and shoot up in price IMHO.
#19
Excellent price!
Downloaded the free Shakespeare for my iPod Touch and am loving it! once you understand the definitions of the old english words and slang it is a right hoot and demonstrates why the great bard is so widely honoured and his works so loved...

That was what I thought when I ordered it 6 months ago at £14.99...still a bargain imo, so this is RED HOT

Mine arrived today & even though the box was left outside in the snow the book is ok - and HUGE :) Thanks for a great deal, I'm not sure if I'll read all of it but woe betide any potential burglar, they will have ~2500 pages of headache to think about.
