`Professor Mahood's book has established itself as a classic in the field, not so much because of the ingenuity with which she reads Shakespeare's quibbles, but because her elucidation of pun and wordplay is intelligently related both to textual readings and dramatic significance.' - Revue des Langues Vivantes

The book is an insightful examination of puns in selected works of Shakespeare. Some are simple Write/Rite. Some take the form a Latin word which is contained in an English word that puns on a different English word.
