An extremely interesting "critical essay on Shakespeare" by Leo Tolstoy, published in 1906, laying out why Tolstoy disagreed with the conventional view that Shakespeare was a great playwright. The book also contains a second essay called "Shakespeare's Attitude to the Working Classes", by Ernest Crosby, and extracts from a letter by George Bernard Shaw.
A good read for anyone remotely interested in Shakespeare.
