Renowned English language expert David Crystal and his Shakespearean actor and producer son Ben unlock the mysteries of Shakespeare’s world and words. The pair have collaborated on a new book, Oxford Illustrated Shakespeare Dictionary, an explanation of the meaning of more than 4,000 difficult Shakespearean words and an insight into the world of Shakespeare and the staging of his plays.

The Crystals are uniquely placed to bring Shakespeare’s words and plays to life for readers and audiences. David is known across the world as a writer, lecturer and broadcaster on the English language. He is author of The Stories of English, Evolving English, Begat: The King James Bible and the English Language and Spell It Out: The Singular Story of English Spelling. Ben is an actor, writer and producer well known for both his innovative acting and his Shakespearean workshops. He has written a series of Springboard Shakespeare introductions to Shakespeare’s plays and his Shakespeare on Toast; Getting a Taste for the Bard was shortlisted for the Educational Writer of the Year award.
