"Browse the delightful Bardisms to find a fitting quote for any mood, moment, or occasion. But read it through to learn how to enjoy Shakespeare and bring more of his language into your daily life." -- Jacob Weisberg, Editor of Slate magazine and author of Bushisms

"A fantastic reference for anyone who loves Shakespeare!" -- Steve Martin

From renowned Shakespearean director Barry Edelstein comes Bardisms: a straightforward, accessible guide to using Shakespeare's wit and wisdom at special occasions of every type. Over the course of his career, Edelstein has directed more than half of Shakespeare's plays, and he brings all his passion, insight, and years of study to Bardisms. In the words of Adam Gopnik (Through the Children's Gate), "Barry Edelstein knows more about Shakespeare, and in a less pedantic manner, than nearly anyone I know."
