'…Rubinstein is far from innocent and comes to our aid with a lot of learning…and is quite right to urge that not to appreciate the sexiness of Shakespeare's language impoverishes our own understanding of him. For one thing, it was a strong element in his appeal to Elizabethans, who were much less woolly-mouthed and smooth-tongued than we are. For another, it has constituted a salty preservative for his work, among those who can appreciate it…an enlightening book.' A.L.Rowse, The Standard.
