|aIn the puritanical climate of Elizabethan England, Shakespeare became a master of the double entendre, crafting lines and scenes that unfolded in a variety of meanings. Filthy Shakespeare presents more than seventy examples of the bard at his raunchiest, with each passage translated into modern English and the hidden meanings of the original words explained.
