Today marks the 400th Anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. The bard has influenced literature and culture for centuries - celebrate with one of these Shakespearean works!

William Shakespeare, the most celebrated poet in the English language, left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of wild supposition arranged around scant facts. With a steady hand and his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colorful muddle to reveal the man himself. 

Baz Luhrmann's rendition of the classic story of star-crossed lovers, set in a futuristic urban Verona Beach.

Macbeth by Gareth Hinds

Shakespeare's classic story of dark ambitions, madness, and murder springs to life in a masterful new graphic novel by Gareth Hinds. Set against the moody backdrop of eleventh-century Scotland, Gareth Hinds's captivating, richly illustrated interpretation takes readers into the claustrophobic mind of a man driven mad by ambition.
