"Better a witty fool, than a foolish wit,” said the world's greatest and most preeminent English writer of all time, William Shakespeare.

Have you ever wanted to quote the most quoted writer in the English language? Deliver the most inventive and debasing Shakespearean insult ("Would thou wert clean enough to spit upon!”)? Recite titillating love poetry like a modern-day Romeo to his (or her) Juliet? Or commit a learned wisdom about life's woes to memory? The Smart Words and Wicked Wit of William Shakespeare is the perfect pocket book to carry around in your arsenal. Laugh, cry, rage, and muse along with beloved (or not so beloved) Shakespeare characters like Hamlet, Lady Macbeth, King Lear, and Cleopatra on the topics of love, art, beauty—as well as life's most irreverently relevant insights.

Full of savvy wisdoms from works such as Twelfth Night, Othello, A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, and many others, this inspiring collection compiles the wisest and wittiest Shakespearean quotations that speak of the writer's enduring legacy—even in contemporary pop culture.
