Reference Works

The philological and lexicographical scholarship on Shakespeare is vast. We have used this scholarship to create a "hyper-annotated edition" of Shakespeare that will be of use to readers of all kinds. The Garner includes two of the most well-known and often consulted glossaries: Alexander Dyce's Glossary of the Works of William Shakespeare, and C. T. Onions's Shakespeare Glossary. These reference works contain thousands of glosses to Shakespeare's texts, which we have hyperlinked to facilitate use. We will soon add the indespensible Shakespeare Lexicon and Quotation Dictionary by Alexander Schmidt.
