If you want to be Shakespeared rightly...,
This review is from: Think on My Words: Exploring Shakespeare's Language (Paperback)
If you want to be Shakespeared rightly and get to know in detail all the fascinating nuts and bolts (David Crystal's phrasing) of his delicious tongue told by the number 1 Shakespearean scholar, the book is not to be left unread, well...undevoured!!! As Sphex notes in his review, Professor's enthusiasm is infectious, and inviting in!
A fascinating admixture of most meticulous, accurate and informative research and a friendly, crisp, and entertainingly beautiful manner of delivery, Professor Crystal leaves nothing to be desired!
The book is a number one reference for anyone interested in Shakespeare, from Bardoholics to Englisholics.
I strongly recommend this must-read book, well... "Shakespeare's Words" too, and..."The Shakespeare Miscellany", and...well, all by Professor David Crystal!!!
By the way, did you know why Shakespeare's name is spelled the way it is spelled???
