The Swan of Avon

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) — "How beauteous mankind is!" For lovers of William Shakespeare, memorizing one of Hamlet's soliloquies or recalling whether The Tempest is a romance or a tragedy just got easier.

Web search leader Google Wednesday launched a site devoted entirely to the Bard, that allows U.S. users to browse through the full texts of his 37 plays. Readers can even plug in words, such as "to be or not to be" from Hamlet, and immediately be taken to that part of the play.

Interesting news, Bill. But in the past few years several other plays have been partly accredited to Shakespeare including a play called , I believe, "The Two Kinsmen" and another about Thomas More. When will they show up?

You'll have to check with Google on that one.
