The complete Shakespeare — Free, the way we like it

Photo

As I recall, back when I was an undergrad at UCLA I took an English class focusing on Shakespeare and the textbook was a two-inch-thick volume, expensive by my standards at the time, which included Shakespeare's complete works.

Fast forward to the 21st century, where you can download a free app for iPhone/iPad which not only lets you carry that book in your bag or pocket but also gives provides a searchable concordance to find the exact word or phrase you're looking for.

Bonus: "Relaxed" searching to find words close to your search term.

The app was updated yesterday for the retina display and I must say it looks smashing.

Up top is a screenshot from the app's opening page on the new iPad.

Nice companion to yours truly's book on iPhone, for when you tire of quantum musings in the checkout line and just need the right sonnet to take you to your happy place.

Speaking of Julius Caesar, this inspired bit of silliness had me laughing my ass off (if only) for about ten minutes -

Marcus Antonius:

When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept;
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,
And Brutus is an honorable man.

Ambition has its costs, Joe. Stick with the Sonnets.
