Abstract:

"In Shakespeare's Language, Keith Johnson offers an overview of the rich and dynamic history of the reception and study of Shakespeare's language from his death right up to the present. The historical approach provides a comprehensive overview, plotting the attitudes towards Shakespeare's language, as well as a history of its study. This approach reveals how different cultural, literary and linguistic climates have moulded these attitudes and reflects changing linguistic climates. Shakespeare's Language is therefore not only an essential guide to the language of Shakespeare, but offers crucial insights to broader approaches to language as a whole"--
