This book provides an accessible guide to the linguistic environment of Shakespeare, his use of vocabulary, grammar and sentence construction. Although Shakespeare's plays are familiar to us, the language in them is not always easy to understand or translate. Not only does Shakespeare use difficult and seemingly archaic words, but also constructs his sentences and makes use of grammar in a very different way to modern writers. This book is an introduction to the various aspects of the language of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Professor Blake has provided an accessible guide to the linguistic environment of Shakespeare, his use of vocabulary, grammar and sentence construction. By understanding Shakespeare's language students can avoid misinterpretation, recognise the possibilities of linguistic meaning and so fully appreciate Shakespeare's formidable artistry.
