If you absolutely need an edition that has line numbers then may I suggest the Norton edition of Shakespeare's complete works? It is the whole shebang with line numbers, helpful explanatory essays, and extensive annotations and textual notes. The binding leaves a little to be desired though, so you are making a little bit of a trade off for the breadth of content, so if you want a lovely leather bound one then you might have to do a bit of research.

It all ended so fast. I feel like it's just January, but look at the calendar - it's December! You surely remember earlier in the year when I said I had put a challenge for myself. This was the Shakespeare Challenge, in which I had to read all the works known by William Shakespeare. I finally read them all! It started in January. I was bored and I didn't know what to read. One day I went to the library and checked out a book that contained 4 of Shakespeare's best plays.
I read it and It all ended so fast. I read it and soon after I told myself I needed to read more of his works. Thus, I got another book: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. The task of reading Shakespeare's works was not as difficult or tedious as it seems to be. It took me long because I was most of the time busy and didn't have time to read, so I read them in-between classes and studying.
To my surprise, I loved some of the plays, others disturbed me, and others made me laugh out loud. The first plays I read were the most popular ones, and were the ones I enjoyes the most. The tragedies worked better for me than the comedies, with the exception of Romeo and Juliet, which I did not despise but didn't love either. About the historical plays, I can say they were harder to read because the tone was more serious and they were not meant to entertain, but they were worth reading all the same. As for the poems, they were good too.
They were beautiful, and this is said by someone who is not used to read poetry. I tell you, this challenge is one of the best I've put to myself. For next year, I'm not sure if I'll put more aside the Goodreads one because of my studies, but I certainly will read more classics for example something by Jane Austen.
Apr 23, midnightfaerie is currently reading it. I understand now why I have such a hard time reading Shakespeare. It's not that it's hard to understand. There are enough translations and self help guides to get you through the plot of any of the plays. And once I started reading and translating, I started to get the hang of it, and had fewer words and phrases that I had to look up.
No, it's not that. Simply put, it's a play, and not meant to be read. I know there are some who might disagree with me, however, that's my opinion. I revel in the I understand now why I have such a hard time reading Shakespeare. I revel in the complacency of description and plays don't have it.
It is just dialogue. There is nothing to tell you infinitely how a character is feeling or what they're thinking. There's nothing to tell you how the set looks besides a sometimes small minimalist description.
There is nothing to tell how a character looks, are they beautiful? Yes, I understand you can infer many of these things from the dialogue which is what you're supposed to do, but to me, there is great room for interpretation, unlike a book, which will describe it for you.
Also, after doing a little reading on Shakespeare and the republishing of his works, it seems there are many different conflicting sources of original text, which is why you often find various works with different scripts. I truly believe that Shakespeare meant these to be seen on stage, not read from a page. It's where his genius is best seen and appreciated. That being said, I plan to read each play, then watch a movie rendition of each one. I would also like to list the reasons here that Shakespeare's works are classics instead of going into the same points repeatedly as I review each work.
They are classics, I can't dispute it, whether or not I enjoy each individual play or not. And I do believe this is the first time that an author has gotten 8 out of 10 of my Definitions for a Classic. He's been around through the ages and I have no doubt we'll be acting out his plays on the moon.
His stories will pull you in every time. They focus on the aspects of human nature that we all can relate to, so you care about the outcome of the characters. He has an unusual literary style that has made him popular throughout history. New Style of Writing: Now I'm stretching it with this one, I know, because anyone who has studied literature knows Shakespeare wasn't the first to use Iambic Pentameter, however I believe he was the first to make it popular.
You ask anyone to tell you the first author that comes to mind when you say Iambic Pentameter and they're not going to say Chaucer, they're going to say Shakespeare. There isn't a person on the planet who doesn't know who Shakespeare is. To say his works are controversial is an understatement.
