The Complete Works of William Shakespeare

Welcome Stranger! Here you will find the complete collection of works by the great William Shakespeare in simple plain full-text format. I purposely added no extra formating to these pages, specificially for easy reading and simple frill-less printing.  I realize that of all writers in the English language, Shakespeare’s plays are possibly the easiest to find on the internet. This of course isn’t the only site hosting them. However, I hope my redundancy in re-hosting it will be of use to someone somewhere, in our ever-shrinking “Brave New World, with such people in't!” —like me.  (Tempest Vi)
