This book is a riot. I fell onto it at page 680, it's wonderful to know that i can go back to the beginning when i'm too old to actually do it.

Many of the alleged sexual puns and images in this book are the product of Gordon Williams' fevered imagination, and tell you more about him than they tell you about Shakespeare. Like much in Partridge, and in Rubinstein's book on a similar subject, a large grain of salt is suggested.
