With his unrivalled ability for the dramatist’s art, his mastery of language, the wisdom of his philosophy, and his superlative understanding of human nature, Shakespeare has fired the imaginations of millions–poets, painters, novelists, dramatists, composers, choreographers, and film-makers–and continues to do so.THE WICKED WIT OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE begins with a detailed introduction to Shakespeare’s life and works, and includes notes on the entries within.

The quotes are divided into sections such as Drink and Food- Learning, Wisdom, and Wit- Insults and Abuse- Poverty and Riches- and Men, Women, Love, and Marriage. At the end of the book is a list of Shakespeare’s works.Funny, poignant, witty, and wise, the quotes and passages included in this book will bring a smile to those who love Shakespeare’s works, as well as anyone who is interested in exploring them for the first time.
