The List

Since I was sick the latter part of the week and the weekend, I didn't read any Shakespeare last week. I didn't really read anything much, and that is very unlike me. So I need to pick a play for this week. Hmm, what to read, what to read?

Here is a list of all of Shakespeare's works, in categories and listed by approximate publication date. I'm going to edit the list as I read them this year. I will strike through each work as I read it for this project. I will place an asterisk beside the works that I have never read, indicating a first-time read this year.

You certainly have a lot of reading on your hands there. I think I would opt to read A Mid Summer Night's Dream, seems appropriate for the time of year.
