I'm a big Shakespeare fan, so most of the links in this section point to
sites about him and his work.
- You can find
the complete works at the Shakespeare Home Page.
- The University of Münster
is the site for the Shakespeare
database project that is available on CD-ROM.
- The Shakespeare
Web is aiming to be an interactive site for scholars and fans.
The Elizabethan Theatre is a lecture by Hilda D. Spear of the
University of Dundee, given at Cologne University in Germany in 1989.
- Shakespeare and the Globe,
at the University of Reading, contains lots of information about Shakespeare's
stage and the reconstructed Globe Theatre in London.
(Interesting tidbit: archaeologists
discovered the original site of the Globe because the area they dug in had a
thick layer of nut shells. "Groundlings" (people who watched the three-
or four-hour plays from the dirt floor of the theatre) munched on nuts the
way many of us munch on popcorn at the movies today.)
- Mr. William
Shakespeare and the Internet is also excellent.
- Georgetown University has put
together a Medieval
Studies page. It's even better if you can read Middle English.
- The Medieval
Woman Home Page is a project at McMaster University, in Hamilton, Ontario.
- Voice of the Shuttle's English Renaissance
and seventeenth-century page is a thorough, extensive collection
of links and resources.
Unless otherwise specified, all these sites offer online ordering
and book reviews.
