Reviews

Received rating of "Outstanding" from 2005 University Press Books Committee

"Raffel's glossings are almost without exception accurate and scholarly and some of them will be downright revelatory. The attention he pays to sound and rhythm in his notes will remind students they should be reading Shakespeare aloud and that there is pleasure in doing so."--Dale Richardson, The University of the South


"Burton Raffel is surely one of the profession's top linguists and scholars, and the application here of his vast knowledge of linguistics to Romeo and Juliet provides any reader (whether specialist or not) with the best glimpse available of the great range of Shakespeare's stunning use of the English language."--Tita French Baumlin, Southwest Missouri State University
