Shakespeare was in love--with flowers! And, so too will you fall in love with this feast for the eye and treat for the brain. From anemones to yews, flowers, ferns, herbs, and their symbolism feature prominently in Shakespeare's works, and this tribute to the glory of nature and the power of literature does justice to both. Gorgeous, full-page, close-up color photographs of "honeysuckles, ripened by the sun," "the milk-white rose, whose sweet smell the air shall be perfum'd," the "primrose...merry spring-time's harbinger," "daffodils, that come before the swallow dares," "daisies pied and violets blue," and dozens of other blooms are paired with appropriate selections from the Bard's greatest plays and sonnets. With a lively introduction that discusses the use flowers had in both Shakespeare's writings and Elizabethan gardens, this is the perfect volume for those who want to say it with flowers--and words as well.
