Folger Digital Texts - Shakespeare

Free digital versions of the Folger Library Editions of Shakespeare plays are being made available online through Folger Digital Texts. At present, fifteen plays are available, among them Hamlet, Henry V, Julius Caesar, King Lear, Macbeth, Merchant of Venice, Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado about Nothing, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, Taming of the Shrew, The Tempest, Twelfth Night, and The Winter's Tale. Additional plays are forthcoming. Coding for each text is also available for download (with registration).

The texts are drawn from multiple sources and reflect 21st century scholarship. Editorial emendations are indicated by brackets. You can hover your mouse over bracketed text to see explanatory notes.

Several navigation tools are available--act/scene/line jump, page jump, Folger line jump, and search within the play. Results are hotlinked so you can use them to move through a play based on a search term.
