The Wordsworth Dictionary of Phrase and Fable explains the origins of the familiar and the unfamiliar in everyday speech and literature, including the colloquial and the proverbial, and embracing archaeology, history, religion, the arts, science, mythology and characters from fiction. This valuable dictionary, which revises and updates the original work of Dr. Ebenezer Cobham Brewer, encompasses material from all over the English speaking world and cites many equivalents from other European countries.
