About William Shakespeare:
William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564 – died 23 April 1616) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century. The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare's genius, and the Victorians worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called "bardolatry". In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are constantly studied, performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.

Close But Not Yet
Lacks ability to search which would be a nice update. Everything else is great. Still trying to determine how to place a bookmark. Like that the character names have not been abbreviated.
Missing Hamlet? Paging could use better formatting.
Update: There is a search option but you can only search books individually. Would be nice to search the entire works. Also, there is a bookmark feature.
Very disappointed Hamlet is listed but is not part of the app. Please update. And add the Sonnets too. Then this would get my 5 stars.
No update still???? Lame company.
DO NOT BUY - INCOMPLETE!!
Thought I was getting the complete works but went to look through a few and it was basically one scene from each act! That is worthless.... Don't buy!
They give us incomplete work
I noticed that in the play Romeo and Juliet they do not give us the whole acts infact for acts 1 & 2 they only have the prolouge. That's just stupid. Fix it.
