Edited by John W. Seder and with an introduction by William F. Buckley, Jr.

Marvelous collection of invective phrases, words and gems from the writings of the great English master. This book is for you if you had to read Shakespeare in high school or college and were turned off by improbable plots, archaic language full of thee's and thou's and by characters and situations remote from your own experience. You may have had a teacher who either didn't see or couldn't help you find the wisdom and the beauty -- and the humor -- that are here. Or who didn't understand that Shakespeare's world is not at all distant and remote from our own.

“It is almost shocking,” says William F. Buckley, Jr. in his introduction, “that from a body of work hardly longer than a meaty Dickens novel an entire anthology of insults could be collected. In Mr. Seder's collection the English insult appears at its most robust.”
