Title: The Oxford Dictionary of Phrase, Saying and Quotation

ISBN : 0198662696
Author :
Publisher : Oxford University Press
Media : Hardcover
SKU U31 - 35C


Pages are stained.

When you want to launch a new chapter, win a fight, spice a speech, or merely wax philosophical before the fire, there's nothing like an apt quotation. Elizabeth Knowles has compiled more than 10,000 pithy phrases covering more than 350 themes, from Absence and Achievement to Writing and Youth. Flip through the pages and there's Sydney Smith saying, I look upon Switzerland as an inferior sort of Scotland; Tom Lehrer opining, Life is like a sewer. What you get out of it depends on what you put into it; and Gloria Steinem reflecting, We are becoming the men we wanted to marry. It's a sparkling collection, so finely indexed that it won't take all day to find the quote you seek.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. New editions of reliable reference books inevitably invite comparisons with earlier versions, and that is certainly the case here. Although both titles have kept their original format, they have also added new material, deleted less popular passages, and expanded their indexing. In the second edition of The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations, modern now refers to the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and authors who were alive in or after 1914, while the first edition concentrates on the twentieth century and quotations from those still alive after 1900. While retaining most of the quotations found in the earlier edition, this one adds a number of new selections, such as quotations referring to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Once again, the quotations are listed chronologically under each of the alphabetically arranged authors' names. Several special features are included: 14 special categories, including Advertising Slogans (found under Anonymous in the first edition), Misquotations, Opening Lines and Taglines for Films, which present these quotations alphabetically by the first word of each passage; an expanded keyword index; and a Selective Thematic Index, which points the way to quotations on such motifs as America, Britain, Computing, and Royalty.The second edition of The Oxford Dictionary of Phrase, Saying, and Quotation has been similarly updated. Themes such as Computers and the Internet, Management, and Photography have been added to the list of topics that opens the book. As in the earlier edition, the material is arranged by subject and then further categorized as Proverbs and Sayings, Phrases, and Quotations. Although this edition retains the format of its predecessor, there has been an effort to strengthen the links between individual remarks and fixed phrases and sayings, which are the hallmark of this particular work. Modern sayings related to the topic at hand as well as earlier (sometimes the earliest) forms of an adage have been added to many sections. The keyword index has been expanded and now forms almost one-fourth of the entire book.Although there is some overlap between editions and even between these two titles, large or comprehensive collections will want to add both new editions as well as keep the earlier ones. A collection can never have too many quotation sources. RBBCopyright American Library Association. All rights reserved
