I bought this for an honors project I had to do for my Shakespeare elective class (I'm a senior in high school) on Othello. I found it very useful and have since lent it to my classmates to use for their Honors projects. It has poems from many, many of Shakespeare's plays as well as his sonnets. It is true, there are some plays that have more than others. However, not every one of Shakespeare's plays is in here. The poems mainly address: The Sonnets, Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, The Tempest, King Lear, Othello and Hamlet. There are also a couple poems about Shakespeare himself in between the Parts of the book that divide the poems and sonnets by their categories (Sonnets, Comedies, Tragedies, Hamlet, and Romances).I would reccommend this to anyone who enjoys Shakespeare, Poetry, or Poetry about Shakespeare! Students and Teachers especially, there's alot one can do with these poems so for students it's great for a project and teachers, it's great because for a lesson, you could have your students pick out a poem and try to disect it. It's really fantastic and I would reccommend it.
