No scholar should be without it, and no student should neglect it.

This is a comprehensive reference guide to Shakespeare's literary knowledge and recent scholarship on it.

Stuart Gillespie is Reader in English Literature at the University of Glasgow, UK.


Shakespeare's Books contains nearly 200 entries covering the full range of literature Shakespeare was acquainted with, including classical, historical, religious and contemporary works. The dictionary covers works whose importance to Shakespeare has emerged more clearly in recent years due to new research, as well as explaining current thinking on long-recognized sources such as Plutarch, Ovid, Holinshed, Ariosto and Montaigne. Entries for all major sources include surveys of the writer's place in Shakespeare's time, detailed discussion of their relation to his work, and full bibliography. These are enhanced by sample passages from early modern England writers, together with reproductions of pages from the original texts.

Now available in paperback with a new preface bringing the book up to date, this is an invaluable reference tool.
