Hamlet (AmazonClassics Edition)

When Prince Hamlet returns home to Elsinore Castle for his father’s funeral, he discovers that his uncle Claudius has already crowned himself king. Hamlet begins to suspect something is indeed rotten in the state of Denmark, and a visit from his father’s ghost confirms it. Hamlet vows to avenge his father’s murder, but his consuming obsession yields only crushing grief, overwhelming rage, and a descent into madness.

Resonating with every generation over the centuries, Shakespeare’s profoundly chilling family drama is among the most quoted works from the Shakespearean canon.

Romeo and Juliet (AmazonClassics Edition)

When the feud between the Montagues and Capulets spills into the streets of Verona, a great love must be kept secret—that of Romeo, son of Montague, and Juliet, daughter of the sworn enemy. But only a tragic twist of fate can promise peace.

When Shakespeare staged Romeo and Juliet in 1594, it was already a centuries-old Italian tale that had been translated and adapted in verse and prose by a number of poets and storytellers. Out of the common threads of those now-forgotten works, Shakespeare created not only one of his most popular plays, but one that would become the archetypal love story of the English language.

Macbeth (AmazonClassics Edition)

One night on the heath, the brave and respected general Macbeth encounters three witches who foretell that he will become king of Scotland. At first skeptical, he’s urged on by the ruthless, single-minded ambitions of Lady Macbeth, who suffers none of her husband’s doubt. But seeing the prophecy through to the bloody end leads them both spiraling into paranoia, tyranny, madness, and murder.

This shocking tragedy—a violent caution to those seeking power for its own sake—is, to this day, one of Shakespeare’s most popular and influential masterpieces.

A Midsummer Night's Dream (AmazonClassics Edition)

Festivities are underway in Athens as Duke Theseus prepares to marry Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons. But before the revelry can begin, four young lovers, a roving band of craftsmen, and the quarreling king and queen of the fairies must navigate the antics of a mischievous forest sprite named Puck.

Drawn from Greek mythology, enchanted fairy lore, medieval legend, and the Bard’s own beguiling imagination, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s most popular, peculiar, and everlasting comedy.

Othello (AmazonClassics Edition)

As war rages between Venice and Turkey, Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army, is determined to lead his men to victory with his trusted ensign, Iago. But, after being passed up for a promotion, Iago has plans of his own. Using the general’s wife, Desdemona, as a pawn, Iago spins an elaborate web of deception. Once he has Othello where he wants him, revenge will be his.

One of Shakespeare’s most performed tragedies, Othello’s themes of racism, revenge, and betrayal continue to resonate, as does its most tantalizing and arguable question: What makes Iago so unconscionably evil?

Revised edition: Previously published as Othello, this edition of Othello (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Gastien: From Dream to Destiny: A Caddy Rowland Historical Family Saga/Drama (The Gastien Series Book 2)
"I am Gastien Beauchamp, artist and lover. Any Frenchman would tell you that a peasant could never own property in nineteenth century France. Yet here I am, in my very own studio. The personal cost was horrendous. I barely survived the choices I made, and my sanity was pushed to its limits.

Still, I finally now have security, peace, and freedom. For the rest of my life I can spend time "making love to the color", making love to beautiful women, and enjoying the wild nightlife of bohemian Montmartre. What more could a man need or want?

Then, one night, I see her. One look at Sophie, and my heart wants to betray me! I try to tell myself that I know better. Who needs love, anyway? I am already married-to my art!

No woman would ever understand and accept my lifestyle; nor am I about to give that lifestyle up. Not when I paid so dearly for it! Besides, I am too badly damaged to ever open up my heart...and if Sophie found out about my past she would not want to even know my name. I can't take that chance. I have had enough pain to last me a lifetime."

The Merchant of Venice (AmazonClassics Edition)

After his ships and money are lost at sea, Antonio, a prominent Venetian merchant, cannot repay a loan to Shylock, the Jewish moneylender and long-suffering target of his ridicule. Antonio must rely on an unexpected source, Shakespeare’s first great heroine, to save his skin—quite literally—in this intriguing tale of love, law, mercy, and revenge.

The Merchant of Venice is perhaps best known for its controversial depiction of Shylock. Originally conceived as a bloodthirsty villain, Shylock has been later understood to be a far more sympathetic character who challenges cultural stereotypes while reminding audiences to look beyond the barrier of ethnocentricity.

The Tempest (AmazonClassics Edition)

For years, Prospero, sorcerer and overthrown Duke of Milan, and his daughter, Miranda, have been marooned on an island of magic, both good and evil. When a ship carrying his usurping brother sails within the realm of his power, Prospero unleashes a storm that leaves the crew washed ashore, separated, and vulnerable to his enchantments—and open to forgiveness, repentance, and love.

Given its themes of reconciliation and closure, and its references to the dissolution of “the great globe,” this tragicomedy of illusion and the supernatural is believed by some critics to be Shakespeare’s spellbinding farewell to the stage.
