Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis

One of the world's foremost authorities on the English language, and the actor Ben Crystal, have taken a fresh look at the vocabulary of Shakespeare's poems and plays and compiled a glossary of nearly 14,000 words and meanings that are frequently misunderstood by—or incomprehensible to—the modern reader. Every entry is supported by at least one illustrative quote to help the student, the teacher, the actor, the scholar, and the general reader grasp the depth and beauty of the Bard's language. Shakespeare's Words includes:

  • Complete listings of all the French, Latin, Spanish, and Italian words, as well as Welsh, Scottish, and Irish dialects Shakespeare used
  • Easy-to-read diagrams that represent the relationships between the characters and places for each play
  • A conventional plot synopsis and list of dramatis personae for all the plays
