Who said, 'Neither a lender nor a borrower be'? Who are the 'star-crossed lovers'? Which Shakespearean lady protests too much? With over 3,000 quotes, from single lines to quite long extracts, organised 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. Both useful and entertaining, The Arden Dictionary of Shakespeare Quotations is an ideal companion for students, teachers or performers of Shakespeare.
