Shakespeare’s plays and his sonnets are crammed with puns. Many of them are
among the most quoted phrases in the English language: for example, the
opening lines of Richard III – ‘Now is the winter of our discontent made
glorious summer by this sun of York,’ where the speaker, Richard, is referring
to himself, a son of the house of York. By using that pun Shakespeare
transforms the seasons of winter and summer into the idea of bleak and good times.
