    "An excellent resource for all Shakespeareans."

    December 2, 2009  |   By thequeenofcurdsandcream


    I welcomed the opportunity of locating words or quotations, either within a specific play, or more generally across the range of plays.


    It doesn't include the poetry and I wish the site would specifiy the Shakespeare editions that are used.


    I was offered a download whilst studying for an MA in Shakespeare and found it invaluable for locating quotations when I was unsure exactly from where they originated. Once I'd identified what I was looking for I was able to pick up whichever text I was using and find its exact location, although a mention of which edition was used would have helped to save a little more time. The site could be improved by including the Sonnets and narrative poems. However it functions as the best concordance that I have found online (although this isn't its primary function) and saves a huge amount of time.
