A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

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 wars 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.

About the Author:

Jessica Kerr lectures to garden clubs on the flower imagery in Shakespeare’s plays, and is particularly interested in every aspect of English life in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. She was born in Dublin, was educated at Roedean School in England, and studied at the Royal College of Music in London for five years on an open scholarship for violin, graduating with the degree of A.R.C.M. Mrs. Kerr now lives in Clearwater Beach, Florida.
