About the Book:

A standard in the field, German schoolmaster and philologist Alexander Schmidt's (1816-1887) Shakespeare Lexicon is the source for elucidating the sometimes cryptic language of Shakespeare and tracking down quotations.

Shakespeare Lexicon: Vol: 2 covers M through Z, from "Mab: the queen of the fairies" to "Zounds: an oath contracted from God's wounds," and features numerous appendices and supplements on grammar and usage.

Every word from every play and poem is catalogued, referenced, and defined in this exhaustive two-volume work, the result of arduous research and stalwart dedication. The 2 volumes contain more than 50,000 exact quotations, each precisely located. There is no other word dictionary comparable to this work. Serious scholars and zealous fans will find the Shakespeare Lexicon the ultimate guide to reading and decoding the Bard.
