Based on the highly acclaimed seventh edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, this new edition maintains its extensive coverage of literary and historical quotations, and contains completely up-to-date material from today's influential literary and cultural figures. It is the only dictionary of quotations which ensures coverage of the most popular and widely-used quotations by searching the largest ongoing language research programme in the world, the Oxford English Corpus.

An easy-to-use keyword index traces quotations and their authors. This is the most authoritative paperback dictionary of quotations available. Containing over 9,000 quotations from more than 2,300 authors, it is both a fascinating read, and an invaluable general reference tool.
