Shakespeare's Insults: Educating Your Wit by Wayne F. Hill, Cynthia J. Ottchen

The sharpest stings ever to snap from the tip of an English-speaking tongue are here at hand, ready to be directed at the knaves, villains, and coxcombs of the reader's choice. Culled from 38 plays, here are the best 5,000 examples of Shakespeare's glorious invective, arranged by play, in order of appearance, with helpful act and line numbers for easy reference, along with an index of topical scorn appropriate to particular characters and occasions. Line art.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

As I am always around people who don't use common insults, or I'm around children, I and i don't want to say things like that, this book is will always be VERY usefull! It's interesting to watch my friends reactions when i burst out (after something heavy lands on my foot) o thee vile demons that can do such stupid things, they have more ear wax then brains
