This concise, illustrated dictionary of Shakespeariana, compiled by one of the best-known authorities on his works, contains alphabetically arranged entries guiding the reader to a wealth of information on all aspects of Shakespeare in his own time and on his impact and influence on later ages. Stanley Wells provides clear entries on: Shakespeare's life and times, the sources and early publication of his works, their performance history on stage and screen, actors such as Edmund Kean and Kenneth Branagh, and writers especially associated with them, operas and other musical works deriving from them, theaters, editions, international Shakespeare organizations--in short, on all aspects of Shakespearean interest. The volume is complemented by a series of striking pronouncements about Shakespeare over the ages from Jane Austen to Bernard Levin, tables providing interesting facts about the plays, famous documents bearing Shakespeare's signature, and a useful guide to further reading.
It's excellent quality for the price. The only reason that I didn't give it a higher rating is that it is more of a list of writers during the time of Shakespeare. It also explains some technical terminology. But it does not explain Shakespearean language.
If you need to know what "act" and "scene" are, or the name of the characters in the play, this might fit the bill. As far as having all those strange Shakespearean words, well, they are not to be found.

Not a good purchase for me.
I had hoped this dictionary would include a prounciation key to the words being defined, as most dictionaries do. Because of this shortcoming,the book will not be as useful a reference tool as I had hoped.
I bought this book to help me understand what Shakespeare says. If you have ever read Shakespeare, or had to perform it, then you understand what I mean. You won't learn what does "What tributaries follow him to Rome" mean. (Which by the way means "What Captive Princes follow him to Rome".) That simply isn't in this book.

This is what I need a Dictionary of Shakespeare to do. All the information about Shakespeare and all references to his work isn't particularly helpful when you don't understand what "tributaries" are. I suggest you take a pass at this book.
