BARD IN BRIEF: SHAKESPEARE IN QUOTATIONS

Shakespeare is the greatest dramatist in the English language, but none of his manuscripts survive. Less than half his plays were printed before he died, in editions known as quartos from their relatively small size. Most of his plays appeared in the First Folio, a large, handsome volume printed seven years after Shakespeare's death. What we know of his dramas comes from these sources.
