Shakespeare's Insults Calendar, Daily Boxed, Pomegranate
The greatest playwright of all time and author of exquisite, lyrical sonnets, Shakespeare also came up with some of the most memorably vile maledictions, bawdy japes, crushing ripostes, and lewd, scurrilous insinuations ever to grace the English language. Here are 313 brief excerpts from Shakespeare's plays (Saturdays and Sundays share a page and an entry) showcasing his sly, outrageous, and wickedly delicious put-downs. Contextual notes - who is abusing whom, why, and in what play - support each quotation. This 2006 Daily Boxed calendar was published by Pomegranate.
