As You Like It
Act I. Scene III.

A Room in the Palace.

Cel. Why, cousin! why, Rosalind! Cupid have mercy! Not a word?
Ros. Not one to throw at a dog.
Cel. No, thy words are too precious to be cast away upon curs; throw some of them at me; come, lame me with reasons.

    This site attempts two things:

    To be a complete annotated guide to the scholarly Shakespeare resources available on Internet. The navigation menu at left appears on each major page. Use it to access the resources indexed here. The "Other" Sites page is a definite exception to the term "scholarly." Our newest feature is a listing of Shakespeare Festivals.

    To present new Shakespeare material unavailable elsewhere on the Internet, such as

  • A Shakespeare Timeline, which gives the key events of Shakespeare's life and work along with related documentary evidence. There are several supporting pages to the timeline:
  • A Shakespeare genealogy. A chart showing the relevant family relationships and dates.
  • A Shakespeare Timeline Summary Chart, showing the events of Shakespeare's life in outline along with important contemporary events and publications.
  • A Shakespeare Biography Quiz. If you are brave enough, you may take the quiz before reading the timeline.

  • The Shakespeare Canon.
  • Rowe's Some Acount of the Life &c. of Mr. William Shakespear, prefaced to his 1709 edition of the Works.
  • Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales From Shakespeare.
  • The Prefatory materials from the First Folio.

    Political Writings of George Orwell


    I created this website in hopes of re-introducing Orwell to a wider readership, who may only know him through his most famous novel Nineteen Eighty Four. Seeing how frequently Orwell is quoted out of context in political discussions on the Internet -- often to support spurious arguments and political causes which he might have condemned in his own lifetime -- I hope to create a resource for political philosophers of all stripe... [snipped by MP]

    Orwell was 47 years old when he succumbed to tuberculosis in January 1950. Given the astuteness of his observations on the World War II era, can we even begin to imagine what books he might have written had he lived through the Fifties? What would he have said about the Cold War? Sputnik? Television? The JFK assassination? The Beatles? Vietnam, Watergate, the moon landing? Perhaps, had he lived past the year 1984 itself, might he have commented on the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union? Unfortunately we'll never know.
