Welcome to taffeta*punk!

This website is intended to be a collection of the known works of William Shakespeare, with annotations and illustrations and background info and ever so many other interesting things.

I am a big fan of Shakespeare. I watch movies and attend plays whenever the opportunity presents itself. However, I do not fully understand the texts. So, as a personal goal, I've decided to read every play, every sonnet, and every poem. This website is a bit of fun exploration-and-extrapolation for me as I read and digest the text.
Deformed, unfinish'd, sent before my time
Into this breathing world scarce half made up
This website is a work in progress. I will upload the complete text of the plays, poems and sonnets. I will be adding illustrations, annotations and interactive features. On some pages, you may see temporary placeholder text instead of graphics.

A Note About The Content

The Shakespearean text used on this site is based on the Moby Shakespeare. This site is intended to be media-heavy, even though I make every effort to optimize graphics. For faster page loads, scenes from each play will be displayed on separate pages. For best viewing experience, please use a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768.

Thank you for coming by! I hope you enjoy your visit.
