Barbs from the Bard: Shakespearean Insults With Modern Translations and Notes

Ever miss a prime opportunity for a snappy comeback or a perfect putdown? We all have, kicking ourselves later when we think of what we could have said. The well-aimed insult was never in better shape than when Shakespeare mastered the art of defining dramatic conflict with rapier wit rather than swordplay.

Publisher's Summary

Ever miss a prime opportunity for a snappy comeback or a perfect putdown? We all have, kicking ourselves later when we think of what we could have said. The well-aimed insult was never in better shape than when Shakespeare mastered the art of defining dramatic conflict with rapier wit rather than swordplay. This audiobook is a collection of some of the most cutting jeers and outrageous affronts ever spoken and as such can be a fine resource for just those moments you don't want to let slip by without comment. It also provides the ultimate opportunity to access Shakespeare's world of words in an immediate and visceral.
