The Arden Dictionary of Shakespeare Quotations

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, 2010 M11 1 - 416 pages

Who said "Neither a lender or borrower be", who loved "not wisely but too well" and whose "salad days" are now behind her? If you have ever struggled to remember a Shakespeare quote, this is the book for you. It has over 3,000 quotes from single lines to quite long extracts, organized by topic and by play, with a key word index making it very easy to use. The dictionary also includes a glossary of unfamiliar terms and a brief biography of Shakespeare. It is very easy to dip into by word, theme or by play and the key word index means you can track down a half-remembered quote easily.

A beautifully produced small format hardback with a colourful jacket, book ribbon and a bookplate, this is great gift for literary types, after dinner speakers and crossword fillers!
