Shakespeare's Wordcraft (Limelight) (Paperback)

Usually Arrives at Kepler's in 3-14 Days


Written for readers who have a passion for Shakespeare, Shakespeare's Wordcraft takes a comprehensive look at Shakespeare'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 foul, and foul is fair - Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more - Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears In a 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.
