The Arden Dictionary of Shakespeare Quotations is a rich and diverse compilation of over 3,000 quotations from Shakespeare's plays and poems. Combining the Bard's most memorable phrases with less familiar gems, the Dictionary highlights Shakespeare's ability to express complexity of thought with linguistic agility, vivid imagery and humour, and highlights why his writing remains so popular today. This book is an enjoyable read as well as a useful resource for students of Shakespeare, offering an insight into the writer's views on life - from madness, love and women, to bawdy jokes and drinking.
A detailed keyword index gives swift access to individual phrases, while a separate glossary and index, listing all the entries by play title, are also included.
