* Denotes a Problem Play
The Problem Plays are works that scholars have a difficult time categorizing because of their abrupt and inconsistent tonal shifts. This is not to say that there are not mixed tones in his Tragedies or Comedies, these tonal issues are just more prominent. These plays go beyond the mixing of genre. They lack elements necessary to be considered a Tragedy, but they deal with far too difficult and complex moral issues to be a Comedy.



Over the course of his career, Shakespeare wrote 154 Sonnets. They cover a variety of themes, but most of them are associated with love. They were all published together in a quarto in 1609. He also wrote six additional poems that can be found in a handful of his plays. Click here to see a full list and read them!
