The Complete Plays of William Shakespeare

This past weekend was a milestone for Stuff Jeff Reads. After publishing my thoughts on The Tempest, I have officially covered every Shakespeare play on my blog. Fear not, though. If you are a Shakespeare fan, there are still plenty of sonnets, as well as some longer poems for me to read and write about.

So here is the list of all 38 plays, with links to my reviews. In addition, you can access everything in my archive via the Books & Poems by Author page. Enjoy, and never stop reading!

  1. Congrats Jeff!
    I have enjoyed following you along on your journey of all things Shakespeare with a bit of Crowley added along the way

  2. Wow! That’s quite the accomplishment. I have just recently acquired a taste for Shakespeare. I haven’t yet read his plays but am watching movie versions for now. I do struggle with the language and vocabulary, but do love the depth of insight and passion. Do you have any favorites?

  3. Thanks. I watched Hamlet and really loved it. I’ve started a modernized version of Midsummer Night’s Dream. I think I’ll try and read Hamlet. It might take me five years, but what the heck!

    • It’s worth the effort. BTW – did you realize that The Lion King is the Disney version of Hamlet? Uncle kills Father/King, usurps the throne to marry Queen. Ghost of King appears to son (Hamlet/Simba) and prompts him to avenge his death. 🙂

  4. I had not made the connection to The Lion King. Yes, I see that. Hamlet light? 🙂

  5. Congratulations, Jeff! That’s a huge accomplishment. I have the complete works from college. The book is about 5 inches thick and weighs a lot!

  6. I haven’t read of your William Shakespeare posts. I have really enjoyed those that I’ve been able to get too. Thanks for hard work. I’ll work my way through them.

    • Hi DQ. I know you have read a bunch of them and I always appreciate your insightful comments. Thank you for being so supportive and I hope you and yours are staying safe and happy during these strange times. Cheers!
