Product description


'Campbell's phenomenal achievement' is 'a mighty new reference work' and 'a major scholarly achievement'. (Bulletin of the Society for Renaissance Studies)

'Campbell has written this dictionary with three audiences in mind: the academic specialist, the student, and the general reader. All three will find much to value in this highly recommended work'. (The Library Journal)

The book is a tour de force...the contents reflect an astonishing breadth of interests and competencies...again and again, topics that are either unexpected or far from the beaten track come to life in cogent, crystalline and instructive summaries. (Times Literary Supplement)
