Written especially for readers who have a passion for Shakespeare, Shakespeare's Wordcraft takes a comprehensive look at the Bard's stellar use of language devices throughout his plays, devices he used to ink memorable lines like these: I must be cruel only to be kind; Fair is fo...ul, and foul is fair; and, Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more! In clear, accessible non-academic style - using plain terms, modern quotes, and several thousand examples - Shakespeare's Wordcraft deftly reveals how these lasting lines were not accidental or coincidental, but designed and crafted by a master of the word.
