A Great Resource,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shakespeare's Words: A Glossary and Language Companion (Hardcover)
I studied Shakespeare at school and uni and am familiar with the lingo; however, I find myself referring to this tome for the exact meanings of words whose use has changed.
The most use I have made of this book has been during those moments when I haven't had time to get into a novel, but want something to occupy my mind, for example, while waiting for something to cook. Then I'll open it at any page and find interesting knowledge which increases my understanding of Shakespeare's language.
A must for students and anyone with a love of Shakespeare.
The reason I've given only four stars is its enormous size and weight (like a concise dictionary) and lack of portability.
