Who said " Neither a lender nor a borrower be"? Who are the star-crossed lovers? Which Shakespearean lady protests "too much"?


If you have ever been stuck trying to identify a Shakespearean quote then this is the book for you! With over 3,000 quotes from single lines to quite long extracts, organized by topic and by play, this is an essential book for anyone with an interest in Shakespeare. The key word index makes it easy to use and it also includes a glossary of unfamiliar terms and a brief biography of Shakespeare. The Dictionary is easy to dip into by word or theme (love, greed, disease, war etc) or by play, and the indexes allow readers to track down a half-remembered quote easily.


An ideal companion for all students, teachers or performers of Shakespeare, this Dictionary is a useful and entertaining reference work.
