Shakespeare's Complete Works 

hardcover, edited by Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen. The modern libraries are available as individual paperbacks as well, which is how I buy them. Each paperback costs between 6 and 11 dollars.


Favorite Modern Library Paperbacks:

King Lear

Richard III

Antony & Cleopatra

The Taming of the Shrew




Slings & Arrows

fictional Canadian TV series about a Shakespeare theatre company. It is superb. It used to be available on Netflix, but no longer. It's available to buy on Amazon for an exorbitant price, which I would pay twice over for this collection.



Playing Shakespeare

DVD series of RSC actors Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Judi Dench exploring features of Shakespeare’s language and dramaturgy. You can buy the text of the series here. Some episodes are available on Youtube and Amazon Prime.
