The ISE aims to present a "one-stop shop" of information about Shakespeare, including scholarly reviewed full texts of his works, information about his life and times, a list of performances and ephemera from them, and reviews. The ISE is a non-profit affiliated with the University of Victoria, BC, Canada.
The PBS show Frontline explores the controversy surrounding the authorship of Shakespeare's plays. Did William Shakespeare from Stratford-upon-Avon author the works for which he is famous? Learn more about the debate here.
The site integrates the full text of the plays and poems with the entire Glossary database, allowing you to search for any word or phrase in Shakespeare's works, and in particular to find all instances of all words that can pose a difficulty to the modern reader.
