Item description

"Perdita welcomes guests with rosemary and rue for grace and remembrance; Ariel hides in a cowslip�s bell. There is magic in the little western flower Oberon uses to cast a spell on Titania, and tragedy in Ophelia�s garland and Lear�s crown of weeds. In the witches� brews and love potions, as symbols of gallantry or faith, as seasoning in homely English kitchens, or as badges for the s of kings, flowers and herbs were an intimate part of life in Shakespeare�s day. Their legends add color and fragrance to his plays and songs. Shakespeare�s Flowers combines fascinating lore and glorious paintings by Anne Ophelia Dowden, to recreate the gardens and meadows of Elizabethan England."
