A Shakespeare Thesaurus is the first attempt to organize and classify the entire Shakespearean vocabulary. It presents the "world" that is to be derived from Shakespeare’s idiolect and provides a vivid impression of the Elizabethan world. The perspective is, thus, not solely personal, literary, or linguistic but also historical, sociological, and cultural. This classified inventory consists of 37 main groups and 897 subgroups, ranging from the Physical World to Sense Perception, Law to Religion, Time to Space. This unique reference?a treasury of information about Shakespeare and his world?is both indispensable for scholars and students and fascinating for the browser, the curious, and the imaginative. Among Marvin Spevak’s previous works is The Harvard Concordance to Shakespeare.
