    Botanical Shakespeare: My Kind of Nerdy Fun

    Botanical Shakespeare Book, Botanical Shakespeare: My Kind of Nerdy Fun, Karen Hugg, https://karenhugg.com/2019/06/13/botanical-shakespeare/ #botanicalshakespeare #books #botany #Shakespeare #plants #poetry #bard #plays

    The book, Botanical Shakespeare, is a delightful compendium of every mention of plants across all of Shakespeare's works. Physically, it's a lovely book, an old style hardback with a silk ribbon and pretty color illustrations. Inside, it's even more engaging, as author Gerit Quealy alphabetically collects the bard's poetic lines on everything from aconitum to yew.
