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.
