Complete Works of William Shakespeare is the standard name given to any volume containing all the plays and poems of William Shakespeare. Some editions include several works which were not completely of Shakespeare's authorship (collaborative writings), such as The Two Noble Kinsmen, a collaboration with John Fletcher, as well as Pericles, Prince of Tyre and/or Edward III.

The Complete Works form one of the two books (the other being the Bible) "given" to guests on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, so that they cannot choose it. In their 2006-2007 season the Royal Shakespeare Company committed to the performance of the Complete Works in a single year. In 1987 Adrian Hilton acquired a Guinness World Record for reciting the Complete Works non-stop, enduring 5 days without sleep.
