The Complete Plays


William Shakespeare

Here you will find the entire play text of each of Shakespeare's works, with optional act and scene by scene summaries if needed. They are here to be searched, cited and printed at will. Please let duane know if you find any errors or have any suggestions for improving the interface.

The text used is based on the public domain Moby text, which is known to contain errors. Where possible (and over time) I will work to correct those. When you spot them, feel free to point them out to me, that will get them fixed faster.

Please enjoy, and tell your friends! Shakespeare makes life better.
