From Library Journal

Penguin Putnam shows true strength of Will by gathering all the titles in its Pelican Shakespeare line into a single, beautiful volume, complete with cloth covers and a ribbon marker. (LJ 11/15/02)
Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.


"The endurance of Shakespeare depends not only on the felt experience of good, vivid theater, but also on dynamic scholarship that reveals his living text."
–Michael Boyd, RSC artistic director

"Timely, original, and beautifully conceived, this is a remarkable edition, one that makes Shakespeare's extraordinary accomplishment more vivid than ever."
–James Shapiro, professor, Columbia University and bestselling author of A Year in the Life of Shakespeare: 1599

"The big book is a new one-volume edition of the complete works, commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and published by the Modern Library. Two eminent Shakespeareans, Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen, have applied modern editing techniques and recent scholarship to correct and update the First Folio, the first collection of the plays, published in 1623…. Mr. Bate writes… a superb introduction that deals with Shakespeare and his world as well as textual questions."
The New York Times

“The excellent general introduction by Jonathan Bate and the essays and notes on each play are… a feast of literary and historical information.”
The Wall Street Journal

“I look forward to using it over many years… enjoying Jonathan Bate’s perceptive comments, trusting Eric Rasmussen’s textual scholarship.”
—Peter Holland, President of the Shakespeare Association of America, editor of Shakespeare Survey

“Bate’s edition is incomparably superior to all the rest. His knowledge of textual problems and previous commentary seems to be prodigious in its detail and thoroughness…. And his comments on individual plays are unfailingly perceptive. He’s about equally fine as scholar and critic; few excel in both roles, with their very different requirements. Bate is like an all-star shortstop who can also serve as an outstanding relief pitcher…. No other edition has ever impressed me so much.”
--Joseph Sobran, author of William Shakespeare, Alias Shakespeare: Solving the Greatest Literary Mystery of All Time

Jonathan Bate is a passionate advocate of Shakespeare and his introductions to individual plays are full of striking and convincing observations…. The scholarly apparatus is discreet, elegant and pertinent. For each play, we get a set of ‘key facts’: brief accounts of plots, dates and sources, and useful statistics…. Footnotes are found snugly and legibly at the bottom of each page….There is a universe to be found in these annotations: the Renaissance world of power and fate, sex and death, language and philosophy. Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen have given us an edition full of endless fascination.”
—London Times Education Supplement

"This is a glorious edition of one of the world's most important books. It's the essential reference book for anyone who's ever been in love, felt jealousy, fear, hatred, or desire. All human life is here-and every home should have one."
–Dame Judi Dench, RSC honorary associate artist

“Anyone who wants a good single volume edition of the plays…won’t do better than this.” —The International Herald Tribune

“A magnificent new volume.” —A. N. Wilson, Daily Telegraph (UK)

“A triumphant addition to our times.” —Fiona Shaw, The Times (London)

"Thanks to Bate and Rasmussen, we now have a rendering of The Complete Works that, in a rare publishing achievement, would also give complete satisfaction to the author himself."
–Robert McCrum, The Observer

"A new and thoroughly radical edition…. The editorial decisions are argued in an impeccably informative introduction by Jonathan Bate that gives a comprehensive theatrical, social, political and biographical context to the plays. There are pithy essays, also by Bate, to introduce each play as well as exemplary notes at the foot of each page... incomparably useful ... a definitive edition."
–Richard Eyre, Sunday Telegraph

“A splendid edition. The general introduction is among the best 50-page guides to Shakespeare you could hope to find, while the short essays prefixed to each play are like the best kind of programme notes - informative, thought-provoking and humane.... The RSC's edition tells you all you need to know about the life, but also, vitally, allows you to lose yourself in the wonder of the works."
–Colin Burrow, Evening Standard

“Bate’s general introduction to Shakespeare’s life, stage and reputation is superb, and the short introductions to individual works, in particular, are among the best of their kind available.”
—Michael Dobson, The London Review of Books

“Excellent, succinct notes and introductions to each play.”
—John Carey, The Sunday Times (London)

“Professor Jonathan Bate has written thought provoking essays for each play, discussing the source material and its influence on the play as well as pointing out the familiarities [for] contemporary audiences… The glossary includes much that has been ignored in the past …. This volume is an invaluable resource to anyone interested in or simply in love with Shakespeare.” —Speech and Drama

“Bate provides excellent introductory essays to each play and his terrific introduction, simply and effectively summarizing everything you need to know about Shakespeare, man and work, is alone worth buying the edition for.” —The Daily Express (UK)

“Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen have bravely gone where no Bard editors have gone before, basing the entire edition on the First Folio, the rehearsal room version authorized by actors John Hemmings and Henry Condell after Shakespeare’s death. For the first time, the Royal Shakespeare Company has been closely involved in the developing of a collected works, including photography of RSC productions and insights into staging decisions… this is Shakespeare as you like it.” —What’s On Stage

I am not going to comment as so many have on the quality of the content of this book. When dealing with a writer like Shakespeare, it is unnecessary to critique his writing, because nobody would be looking at his Complete Works if they didn't know if they liked his writing. However, I will try to give opinions that may help others decide whether or not to buy this volume of Shakespeare as opposed to another collection.
The binding, as some have said, is not of the highest quality, it seems. My copy is completely new (as evidenced by the "gilding" on the pages still sticking in places), yet there are significant creases where the book opens.
The thickness of the paper, which some have claimed is lacking, to me seems quite adequate, especially for a tome of this magnitude. I have recently been using extensively The Norton Anthology of American Literature, whose pages are as thin as tissue paper, so my basis of comparison may be off.
The text itself claims to be unabridged. However, for texts such as King Lear, where at least two conflicting manuscripts exist, the editors give no information as to what choices they themselves made regarding the text. Text that in other editions is noted as having been adjusted by editors is in this edition laid out as truth, with no indication whatsoever. If you are interested in this sort of thing, I would recommend the individual plays published by The New Folger Library, which have excellent editorial markings.
Another problem, in my opinion, is marginalia. This volume contains none, which makes it tremendously difficult if one intends to use this book as reading. Shakespeare is difficult reading even with textual notes, and without borders on impossibility.

Of course, this does not reflect on Shakespeare. The binding is terrible and the publisher seems to have forgotten the well established convention of including line numbers with the texts. If anyone expects to use their volume for a class or ever expects to need to refer to a specific line in the text, you shouldn't buy this edition. Also, there are no footnotes, another convention established because Elizabethan English differed significantly from modern English. Finally, the publisher seems to have decided that it was just not necessary to leave enough space for each line, often ending a line in the space above, which is the first time I've ever seen this done. Just buy the Riverside, Folger, Yale, or Oxford Shakespeare. Don't waste your money with this.

Eine weitere Autorensammlung von Delphi Classics von hoher Qualität, wobei die entsprechende Sammlung von Goethes Werken ein wenig ausgereifter erscheint. Im Shakespeare sind z.B. vereinzelt Dramen nicht lesefreundlich genug formatiert (ausreichende Absetzung des Sprechers, Abstände der Absätze, etc.; hier bsp. in „Double Falsehood“), aber insgesamt befindet sich alles auf Delpi Classics Niveau. Ich habe vor dem Kauf einige Leseproben der verfügbaren Shakespeare-Ausgaben verglichen, alle anderen sind eine Katastrophe mit unausgereiftem oder gar keinem Layout und wären geschenkt auch noch zu teuer.

Die erwartbaren Delphi-Standards sind ein wohlsortiertes Gesamtinhaltsverzeichnis sowie ein jedem Werk beigestelltes internes Inhaltsverzeichnis; auf ein einblendbares Inhaltsverzeichnis (welches über „gehe zu“ eingeblendet wird) hat man verständlicherweise verzichtet, da dieses bei der gebotenen Textmenge schlichtweg unsinnig wäre. Shakespeares Quellen, sofern verfügbar, sind über das Vorwort des jeweiligen Dramas verlinkt; eine weitere nette Idee sind die Filmposter ausgewählter Verfilmungen. Vermisst allerdings habe ich ein Verzeichnis der Gedichtanfänge bei den Sonetten, hier werden lediglich die Nummern aufgeführt, was es unmöglich macht, gezielt ein einzelnes Sonett anzusteuern, dessen erste Zeile man nur noch vage behalten hat.

Zu beachten ist natürlich, dass es sich um eine Lese- und nicht um eine Studienausgabe handelt, auf Kommentare und dergleichen muss man hier verzichten und wird mit den Originaltexten alleingelassen. Wen das nicht stört, kann fortan zum Preis einer Tasse Kaffee den (beinahe) gesamten Shakespeare im lesefreundlichen und rückenschonenden Format mit sich herumtragen.

I'm not going to say what I think about Shakespeare's work, just about this edition.

This book has loads of beautiful colored illustrations - the cover says they're more than five hundred.

Don't question it. As a complete Shakeperean collection, this book is, by far, the best one of its kind. If you love sonnets, plays, or crave the rush of owning a complet book such as this one, you will undoubtedly enjoy receiving its weighty wisdom in the mail. Whether a curious browser or an avid Shakesperean, you'll find it a literary treasure.
