Packed with illuminating details, it contains: Over 1,000 entries listed alphabetically; a full plot synopsis of each play, list of characters, notes on the text and sources used by Shakespeare; a separate entry for each character; entries on the major directors, actors, theatres and theatre companies associated with Shakespeare from Elizabethan times to the present day; an additional section of essays on the life of Shakespeare and on theatre and play production in his time; an extensive up-to-date bibliography.

Aimed at the theatre-goer, student or general reader, this invaluable reference work will expand your enjoyment and understanding of the greatest playwright of the English language.

This is an updated e-book version of a work previously published as The Penguin Shakespeare Dictionary.
