This Shakespearean reference CD-ROM combines a virtual bookshelf of authoritative resources in to a single, searchable disc. Features include: a lexicon of over 20,000 terms defined in everyday language according to Shakespeare's own usage, with over 50,000 fully cited supporting quotations from his own works; a name dictionary, including complete descriptions of characters, places , and historical figures; character action summaries and plot synopsis of Shakespeare's plays on an act-by-act basis; and a quick reference guide to more than 100 of Shakespeare's more popular quotations. Two references, "Shakespeare Lexicon, Third Edition" by Alexander Schmidt (1902) and "Dictionary of the Characters and Proper Names in the Works of Shakespeare" compiled by Francis Griffin Stokes (1924) have been updated, revised, and reformatted into this electronically searchable database. With more than 260,000 links, users can research topics from the very narrow to the very broad. This CD-ROM may be a useful addition to the reference collections of high schools, colleges, university libraries and public libraries.
