Brush Up Your Shakespeare!
The San Francisco Chronicle called this entertaining and informative guide to the Bard's most famous and quotable expressions "delightful...a gem." From "salad days" to "strange bedfellows," the remarkable legacy of William Shakespeare lives on in our everyday vocabulary. Each entry includes the original meaning of the word or expression, the play or poem in which it appears, which character spoke it, and how it is used today. Cross-referenced for easy use; black-and-white line drawings by Tom Lulevitch.
