Note that in Shakespeare's day, a "comedy" meant something rather different to the modern usage of the word, meaning simply a play with a "happy ending". Some of the comedies, such as The Merchant of Venice
, are certainly not
"funny" works. Of course, many of them are
"comedic" in the modern sense of the word, such as The Comedy of Errors
and The Merry Wives of Windsor
This volume, together with the previously-posted "Tragedies" and "Histories", contain the complete plays of Shakespeare. A separate "Poetry" volume (to be posted shortly) contains Shakespeare's poetry.
This is very much a "work in progress" and is certain to be revised many times, so it will be worth checking at regular intervals to see if an updated version has been released.
