Mr. William Shakespeare and the Internet Maintained
by Terry A. Gray. Simply the
best Shakespeare site available. While rich in content itself (such as it's excellent Shakespeare Timeline), an
invaluable service provided by this site is it's comprehensive links to all things Shakespearean on the Internet.
Shakespeare Online Another dizzyingly
comprehensive site, this one maintained by Amanda Mabillard.
The Internet Shakespeare Editions From the
University of Victoria. A remarkable resource. The "Annex" contains transcriptions of a number of Folio and
Quarto versions of the plays.

STATISTICS of plays by William Shakespeare
Hartmut Ilsemann, of the English Department of Hannover University, has demonstrated that Shakespeare wrote
his plays by comparing the speech length in plays written before and after the opening of the Globe in 1599. His
conclusion is that the change in speech lengths shows a change in the artistic (and financial) involvement of
Shakespeare after he became co-owner of the Globe.
