We spent 28 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. One of the most influential and well regarded storytellers of all time, William Shakespeare penned tales that not only offered intrigue, doomed romance, and hijinks a-plenty, but also contributed a host of new words to the English language that we still use today. We’ve rounded up some of the Bard’s best works, with books to suit both beginners and those with advanced or scholarly tastes. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best shakespeare book on Amazon.
