Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
Shakespeare continues to attract a staggering number of new editions, critical commentaries, and discursive essays, but the supportive linguistic literature has been surprisingly sparse. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
"Shakespeare's Words" is an excellent resource. The definitions are clear and concise and the extra charts and graphs are a wonderful addition. If you have this book for definitions and "All the Words on Stage" for pronunciations, you are ready to study or perform one of Shakespeare's plays.

Format: Paperback
It appears that my copy of this book has a missing signature (and as a result, a duplicate one), so my earlier comments on missing words may be inappropriate - I will have to return my copy for a complete edition to properly asses it. I apologize for the oversight.

Format: Paperback
It may be difficult to provide a full glossary of Shakespeare's words in a portable - and inexpensive - format. The authors manage to do it very well, given the restrictions on size and cost, and even throw in some useful sidebars to make it more interesting for casual browsing. However, when they overlook uncommon or archaic words, missing these can leave the reader with a sense of incompletion and frustration. Look up "chough" for example, a word used in several plays, but not listed here. The authors include "chuff" - but entirely miss its other meaning in its old spelling (chough) - "jackdaw." The deficiencies are not glaring, and the book is a worthwhile purchase, but I would like to see a revised edition with some of these oversights corrected.
