Read full description of the books:
Toda las obras del genero de comedia reunidas en un solo libro y del he tardado bastante en terminar por leer. No dire que sean densas precisamente, pues he tenido tiempo y calma en leer cada una de las comedias escritas por el mismísimo Shakespeare.
Reconozco que hubo algunas que siemplemente me han entretenido como Los dos caballeros de Verona y otras que he disfrutado completamente como Mucho ruido y pocas nueces (y se conviertieron en mis obras favoritas del dramaturgo). Reconozco que conocía algunas obras por su nombre como Sueño de una noche de verano (o por el siemple hecho que he visto muchas adaptaciones basadas en esas obras) y tuve la oportunidad de releer El mercader de Venecia, que lo había leido en su momento, hace unos años, y tiempo despues he visto su adaptación a pelicula.
No hay dado que he disfrutado plenamente la parte comica de Shakespeare.
Y algo extra que quiero agregar (pero que no tuvo nada que ver con la puntuación del libro) es algo que me dejó sin habla cuando leía Sueño de una noche de Verano. Para mí, SIEMPRE será Puck o Robin Goodfellow. No "Coquito" como decidieron dejarle en la traudcción (por más que hayan especificado en el "Dramatis Personae" que Coquito es Puck).

Read information about the authorWilliam Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. Scholars believe that he died on his fifty-second birthday, coinciding with St George’s Day.
At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.
Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century. Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights. Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare's.
Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century. The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare's genius, and the Victorians hero-worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called "bardolatry". In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.
According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life. Shakespeare's writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589. There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.
