Summary
The juxtaposition of quotations by authors from different periods can make for fascinating and amusing reading. The Bloomsbury Biographical Dictionary of Quotations departs from established tradition in that it includes both familiar quotations and perceptive or witty sayings that are less well known. It includes, especially, sought quotations that reflect contemporary issues (eg Jesse Jackson) as well as those from literature (eg quotes both about and by William Blake) and the Bible
