Shakespeare's Bawdy must rank as one of the great Eric Partridge's most outstanding accomplishments. In it, Partridge was able to combine his detailed knowledge of Shakespeare with his unrivalled knowledge of Elizabethan slang and innuendo. Shakespeare's Bawdy is a work of delight and insight that has an appeal that transcends time and class.

David Crystal

It reads as freshly today as it did fifty years ago, when it surprised everyone with its originality and daring, an intriguing blend of personal insight and solid detective-work. If ever a word-book deserved to be called a classic, it is this.
