Shakespeare's use of sexual language, imagery and erotic themes is extensive, varied, and although this is necessarily hard to establish, probably innovative at times. This glossary provides a first-hand guide to Shakespeare's sexual language, some of which is notoriously difficult to unravel and whose roots go back into earlier literature. Compiled by Gordon Williams, author of the authoritative three volume Dictionary of Sexual Language and Imagery in Shakespearean and Stuart Literature, this is a comprehensive but concise reference guide to sexual language and imagery in Shakespeare. Entries are cross-referenced and include references to textual examples where possible.

About the Author:

Gordon Williams is Reader in English at the University of Wales, Lampeter. Previous books include A Dictionary of Sexual Language and Imagery in Shakespearean and Stuart Literature (3 vols, Athlone, 1994) and Shakespeare, Sex and the Print Revolution (Athlone, 1996).

Review:

'Gordon Williams's Glossary and his Dictionary of Shakespeare's sexual language (two different entities) are excellent.' - Bill Godshalk, Shaksper.net

'May I, not for the first time, urge ... [colleagues] to turn to the very scholarly and responsible analysis of Gordon Williams in, for instance, his Glossary of Shakespeare's Sexual Language' Peter Holland, Professor at Notre Dame University, on shaksper.net

'Recent editors can take advantage of the sane, scholarly but frank work of Gordon Williams in his three volume Dictionary of Sexual Language and Imagery in Shakespearean and Stuart Literature and its handy offshoot, A Glossary of Shakespeare's Sexual Language.' - Professor Stanley Wells in 'Looking for Sex in Shakespeare'
