Nice! I've been meaning to buy a kindle, and I'm studying Shakespeare at Uni so this is very handy!

Shakespeare's long out of copyright, so alternatives exist for those who don't like Amazon's DRM.

gutenberg.org/ebo…100 is a free alternative, albeit without images or commentary.

49p is a snip for a prettier version.

A great price and I have downloaded it for my son who is studying Shakespeare.Personally I am still traumatised by trudging through Merchant of Venice and Twelfth Night for my O'Level Eng Lit many moons ago

Yes I think the 49 pence is well spent for all the extra commentary etc that you get. It should make an excellent study aid for students

I know what you mean ... My daughter studied Shakespeare and this would have been invaluable for her. It's such a small price to pay for so much material

Downloaded and heat added thanks.

Great find. Heat added.

Question, I don't have a kindle, but would very much like this. If I was to purchase, how long would it be available to me to download - indefinitely?

I might never buy one to be honest, but at 49p, it's worth taking a chance.

Worthy of the Great Bard.

I have a kindle BUT as far as I am aware, you can install the kindle app on android or ios and the titles are available indefinitely just as if you have a kindle.

You can download the kindle app for iPhone/Android or the desktop kindle app which will allow you to read books

Thank you. I just bought it.

Is the analysis any good?

Calibre E-book management software can be used to remove the DRM (http://calibre-ebook.com/).

Shakespeare was never "in" copyright. He died in 1616 and the Licensing of the Press Act wasn't passed until 1662

Have you seen the quality of the books on Gutenberg? The last one I got from there was virtually unreadable.

Yep, and it's actually quite good (at least the Android version I have). With regards to being able to download it later, it's tied to your account so you just log in and download as you would most other services. 'Indefinitely' is a bit optimistic, but I guess an Amazon service is about as indefinite as it might get.

Not to be pedantic but wouldn't his work have been copyrighted to him and his estate for the 100 years after his death? No idea if it would have been a retroactive law. So from 1662 until 1716.

Odd things interest me.

Cheap but no annotations...

Something priceless brought down to less than toilet paper whereas the mesmeric stuff needed to "play it meaningfully" costs more and is cyclical. Before The Numpties, oka The Overly Developed of Brain, start waggling, take a step back and introspect as to what sorts of brain is required to produce a "Kindle Reader" [& Co.] and what sort of brain is required to realise those plays whilst realising, if poss, that "Shakespeare" is not what The Numpties 'fink who He really is/was. Especially not those Of Choseness who is trying to replace Him with one of their Tag-Along dredged from their Privileged, Special, Talented, Worldly, Entitled & Royal Cesspool.

For those who have yet to master counting beyond their toes other than throwing zeroes at their affliction, realise that Knowledge was there before the advent of humans and to receive that Knowledge does not require The [Overly Developed] Brain, oka The Intellect, which is actually a hindereance to receiving The Knowledge, but The True Heart, The One who is also [refracted within all humans as] Conscience/Morality/Authority/Intelligence/Infinity. Ole Blighty had two real saints [of Divinity and not of Religiosity]. One was/is William Blake and the other Shakespeare. Realise too that since The Playground of The Stone Dead, oka The Bookie/Devolution/etc, is The Earth, everything earthly/gross will deny Reality which then means that Grossness will always promote/try-to-replicate grossness as being unearthly - especially those who Desire Purity without being Pure within [their] Desire. Those who act as if they were chosen/entitled [to be malevolent/gross].

Thanks to the OP for the tip.

Wow, the complete works of Shakespeare AND acid for 49p? I'm in.

Thanks OP. I went mad and also bought the entire works of Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy and the Bronte sisters.

Gadzooks! Cheaper than "Let's Get Ready To Rhumble" forsooth? Aye there's the rub - Ant&Cleo or Ant& Dec?

My only criticism of this collection is that I much preffer the Pink Floyd version of 'Cymbeline'

Smoking hot deal though (oh I do love owning a Kindle :-)
