Une édition de référence d’Hamlet de William Shakespeare, traduit par François-Victor Hugo, spécialement conçue pour la lecture sur les supports numériques.
« Hamlet. Être, ou ne pas être, c'est là la question. Y a-t-il plus de noblesse d'âme à subir la fronde et les flèches de la fortune outrageante, ou bien à s'armer contre une mer de douleurs et à l'arrêter par une révolte ? Mourir... dormir, rien de plus... et dire que par ce sommeil nous mettons fin aux maux du cœur et aux mille tortures naturelles qui sont le legs de la chair : c'est là un dénouement qu'on doit souhaiter avec ferveur. Mourir... dormir, dormir ! peut-être rêver ! Oui, là est l'embarras. Car quels rêves peut-il nous venir dans ce sommeil de la mort, quand nous sommes débarrassés de l'étreinte de cette vie ? » (Extrait de l’acte III, scène 1.)

In The Merchant of Venice, the path to marriage is hazardous. To win Portia, Bassanio must pass a test prescribed by her father’s will, choosing correctly among three caskets or chests. If he fails, he may never marry at all.

Bassanio and Portia also face a magnificent villain, the moneylender Shylock. In creating Shylock, Shakespeare seems to have shared in a widespread prejudice against Jews. Shylock would have been regarded as a villain because he was a Jew. Yet he gives such powerful expression to his alienation due to the hatred around him that, in many productions, he emerges as the hero.

Portia is most remembered for her disguise as a lawyer, Balthazar, especially the speech in which she urges Shylock to show mercy that “droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven.”
