During the course of an average day you will probably quote Shakespeare at least once, almost certainly without being aware of it. Hundreds of the words that we use regularly, from 'assassination', through 'green-eyed' and 'puking' to 'zany', are said to have been coined by the Bard. This fascinating dictionary gives explanations and references for thousands of Shakespeare's words, from the familiar to the downright bizarre. The text is supplemented by descriptions of historical, mythological, fictional and biblical people and places, 100 extended Notes expanding upon points of interest, timelines, a guide to the kings and queens mentioned in his plays, dramatis personae and a filmography. Ideal for students of English Literature and Theatre Studies at GCSE or A-Level, Shakespeare A-Z will appeal to all those with a love of the English language who want to further their understanding of his plays and the language he used, and anyone with an interest in Shakespeare.
