THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

By William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616) was an English playwright, poet and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s greatest dramatist. He is often called England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon” (or simply “the Bard”). His extant works, including collaborations, consist of some 39 plays, 154 sonnets, 3 long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. They continue to be studied and reinterpreted.

Shakespeare’s plays are a canon of approximately 39 dramatic works written by English poet, playwright, and actor William Shakespeare. The exact number of plays—as well as their classifications as tragedy, history, or comedy—is a matter of scholarly debate. Shakespeare’s plays are widely regarded as being among the greatest in the English language and are continually performed around the world. The plays have been translated into every major living language.

Scholars of Elizabethan drama believe that William Shakespeare wrote at least 38 plays between 1590 and 1612. These dramatic works encompass a wide range of subjects and styles, from the playful “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to the gloomy “Macbeth.” Shakespeare’s plays can be roughly divided into three genres—comedies, histories, and tragedies—though some works, such as “The Tempest” and “The Winter’s Tale,” straddle the boundaries between these categories. The Raigne of King Edward the Third, commonly shortened to Edward III, is an Elizabethan play printed anonymously in 1596, and probably partly written by William Shakespeare. It began to be included in publications of the complete works of Shakespeare only in the late 1990s.

Shakespeare’s first play is generally believed to be “Henry VI Part I,” a history play about English politics in the years leading up to the Wars of the Roses. The play was possibly a collaboration between Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe, another Elizabethan dramatist who is best known for his tragedy “Doctor Faustus.” Shakespeare’s last play is believed to be “The Two Noble Kinsmen,” a tragicomedy co-written with John Fletcher in 1613, three years before Shakespeare’s death.
