Columbia Dictionary of Shakespeare Quotations by R. A. Foakes

Book Description

Because his plays, poems, and sonnets are inexhaustible sources of insight into the human condition, Shakespeare is the most quoted--and probably also the most misquoted--writer in the English language. In this topically arranged collection of Shakespeare quotations, the largest of its kind, writers and speakers can find not only an excellent saying on any of 600 subjects, but can be assured of the right wording and the precise source: play, act, scene, line, and character speaking. And if they remember a wonderful passage but forget who said it and in which play, a keyword index will lead them directly to the passage in question and provide the answer.
