I just saw a reference to this book on Twitter, and while I don’t have it personally, I like the idea and think it merits a post for those who might be interested. Shakespeare mentions flowers. A lot. Who can forget Ophelia’s violets “that all withered when my father died”, or Oberon’s “bank where the wild thyme blows”? A Gathering of Flowers from Shakespeare looks to provide visual images to go with the mental picture you already have. I wish somebody would show inside the book! I can’t find sample pictures at all, and that seems a tremendous lost opportunity. Anyway, sounds like a potential great idea if you or someone you know is into nature, flowers, gardening… that sort of thing. Heck, I’d get it if I didn’t already have a stack of Shakespeare books as tall as my kids.
