Overview

The Macmillan Dictionary of Quotations introduces a new concept among books of quotations that is sure to be greeted with delight by writers, public speakers, and lovers of language and literature everywhere. Unlike most old collections of quotations, this is a truly innovative reference work, virtually comprising two books in one volume, as it combines a wide-ranging thematic dictionary of quotations with an informative, bibliographical one. These two distinct approaches are fully integrated under more than 1,100 alphabetically arranged headings - from abstinence and Woody Allen to William Butler Yeats and youth. Frequent cross-referencing among the book's entries rewards the dedicated researcher and the curious browser alike, directing the reader to other relevant quotations throughout the dictionary and to the extensive key-word / key-phrase and speaker's indexes at the back. The Macmillan Dictionary of Quotations is a veritable library of the spoken word and the single most enjoyable and useful book of quotations ever published. Here is an essential reference tool for all scholars and a browser's delight for the recreational reader.
