Synopsis: A comprehensive, easy-to-use, and thoroughly enjoyable collection of timeless poetry, proverbs, and sayings from the most quotable author in literary history. Over 3,000 quotations are arranged into over 400 topics, and many entries include information on context, Elizabethan language, Shakespeare's sources, and historical illusions. Extensive cross-referencing; key-word index.

From Library Journal: The focus of this entertaining dictionary, the authors say, is on "quotations that are likely to be of practical use for writers and speakers today . . . and relevant to modern times and present-day problems." Consequently, among the 400 categories are such headings as democracy, media, public relations, and Star Wars. Nearly half the quotations are annotated, with useful information about meaning and context, but the authors at times spoil it by giving vent to their own irrelevant opinions. They seem determined to demythologize the English victory at Agincourt described in Henry V ; their comment, "Lines that some in England might find applicable today" is a silly gloss on "This England that was wont to conquer others,/ Hath made a shameful conquest of itself." For public libraries.
- Bryan Aubrey, Fairfield, Ia.
