Abstract

Shakespeare was a consummate dramatist and profound observer of human behavior. He vividly described many clinical disorders, including those of sleep. His characters suffered from somnambulism, sleep apnea, insomnia, and nightmares. Sleep, to Shakespeare, was a blessing denied to many of his protagonists.
