Folger Digital Texts wants to be your source for high-quality texts of Shakespeare’s plays, sonnets, and poems, whether you are a reader, student, teacher, performer, or digital developer. These texts are free to read online, and we offer those same great texts free to download in a variety of formats, including as PDF for offline reading and for use on ereading devices, and as XML source code for creating new noncommercial digital projects.

If you are looking for copies of Folger Digital Texts content to read offline, send to others as an attachment, or load onto an ereader, select the “PDF” option above, and choose from individual titles, or download the whole corpus.

If you are interested in our source code, select the “XML” option, above. You can download individual titles, or our complete corpus, and you can also browse our tagging guide to learn more about how we use the tags that appear in the code.
