A gem of a reference book covering everything you could possibly want to know about Shakespeare between two handsome covers. Entries are quite short and range from "What did Shakespeare look like?", "Shakespeare on Film" and lists of compliments, oathes, lovers' vows and boys and girls names. There is an entry for each play too, summarising its plot and outlining major characters and themes. Details are given of the debates surrounding Shakespeare's identity, the known and fanciful facts of his life, and descriptions of the theatres in which he worked and the acting companies of which he was a member. A wealth of information and insight, both useful and entertainingly trivial, make this miscellany a book to satisfy students, buffs and bluffers alike.

Why are certain words used as insults in Shakespeare's world and what do these words do and say? Shakespeare's plays abound with insults which are more often merely cited than thoroughly studied, quotation prevailing over exploration. The purpose of this richly detailed dictionary is to go beyond the surface of these words and to analyse why and how words become insults in Shakespeare's world. It's an invaluable resource and reference guide for anyone grappling with the complexities and rewards of Shakespeare's inventive use of language in the realm of insult and verbal sparring.
