Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Marcel Proust and Virginia Woolf, Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy, Louis Armstrong and Mae West, Woody Allen and Dorothy Parker–these are but a few of the figures who have given voice to our century’s most memorable quotations. The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations offers a unique view of the twentieth century through some of its most memorable bon mots.

There are generous excerpts from literature, from the novels of Hemingway and Joyce, the poetry of Auden, Eliot, and Pound, the plays of Lillian Hellman and Anita Loos, and the lyrics of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter.
