'He was "not of an age, but for all time".' (Shakespeare's contemporary Ben Jonson)

Packed full of the Bard's clever insights, witty asides and timeless nuggets of wisdom, and complemented by fascinating facts about his life and talents, this Little Book showcases some of the most remarkable lines ever crafted in the English language.
