"It was Greek to me." William Shakespeare, the most quoted writer in the English language, is credited with inventing or introducing over 1,700 words. This handy reference showcases the bard's genius, compiling over 1,500 of his most famous epigrams, invectives, literary expressions, and philosophical poems that have found their way into our everyday vernacular -- some so often, they've become clich's. From "a notorious liar" and "all the world's a stage" to "to thine own self be true" and "wild goose chase," Shakespeare's words are a testament to his genius and enduring legacy. This remarkable volume is an outstanding treasury for writers, speakers, students of literature, and any lover of Shakespeare's works.
