The Bard penned 38 plays, 154 sonnets and several other poems. This is a rich collection, thoroughly indexed, of 6,516 extraordinarily apt quotations, arranged under 1,275 topics that cover almost the entire range of human effort and thought, from Ability to Zeal. It is an immense aid to writers, speakers and general readers. The Topical Index is of key words and ideas. A Character Index is subarranged by topic. And a play/poem Title Index leads to all the quotes gleaned from each.
