Summary
"William Shakespeare is generally acknowledged to be the greatest writer in the English language. This new dictionary includes more than 1,500 entries that cover: his theatre and stagecraft; Elizabethan history and society; all of Shakespeare's plays and poems; his main characters; and terms used in critical reviews." "Each of the encyclopedic entries provides a clear explanation of the term, its origins, relevance and use. Dictionary of Shakespeare has been carefully written in a non-technical way to insure that all levels of student and researcher will find the entries clear and uncomplicated." "The entries help explain the terms used in Shakespeare's texts and in their execution and so provides the historical context required to give the reader a full background of the term. This sets the dictionary apart from others on the same subject that concentrate either on single plays or on the biographies of his characters." "A supplement includes a map of the theatres in Elizabethan London; a chronology of Shakespeare's life and times; a chronological list of Shakespeare's plays; a chronology of English Kings and Queens from 1327-1603; a list of public playhouses; and a bibliography."--Jacket
